Assisting fishermen to make essential journeys during Covid-19 restrictions
We can issue these certificates to any individual who has completed their mandatory training, and are therefore on our training database.
To request a certificate
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01472 252302 with the following information:
- Date of birth
- Vessel name
- Vessel registration number (PLN)
- Vessel location (port of operation)
There is no legal requirement for these certificates to be carried. We are creating them in response to requests from fishermen in order to provide them with a piece of documentation which - if required - can help them to demonstrate that they are a critical worker making a necessary journey.
Update on 6 April: Our Training Team have received around 900 requests since Thursday evening and are working through them as quickly as possible. The team are unable to confirm receipt of every request, so please allow 2-3 working days before chasing for a certificate.
We are operating a similar scheme for other seafood businesses - find the details here.
