NAVIGATION SCHOOLS IN FINLAND

 

   Seamen and ship's officers are educated in four second grade schools in Finland. Two of them are in Swedish language. Officers (captain, engineer) are educated in vocational high schools.

   All second grade programs consist of 120 credit units which means 3 years of studing. Third grade education (=vocational high schools) consists of 160 credit units. In addition, all navigation schools have a wide supply of further education programs and several courses.
