With our solid training and vetting regimen you and your clients can rest assured there has been no relaxing of standards.

We also offer complete process transparency and documentation audit trails for everything we do.
In addition to clean discharge books, good bearing and spoken English, the officers hold valid passports, CDCs, STCW95s, ENG1s, Danish medical certificates, weapons handling, psych evaluations, reference letters, and police clearance certificates.
