As the ships sailing through Baltic waters are getting bigger, so are the pilot boats that service them. This means that a company such as DanPilot needs employees with higher competencies than the professional proficiency license required to operate boats of less than 15 meters.
The company, which operates a total of 34 pilot boats, has two pilot boats in Skagen and Esbjerg, Denmark, of more than 15 meters in size, boats that require more advanced papers from employees than the other boats in the company's fleet, and according to DanPilot CEO Lars S.

Right now only around one fourth of DanPilot's employees hold a coastal skipper exam, but going forward the company plans to increase this number.
