We are members of the NGO Ukrainian Seafarers Union, which unites more than 12,000 seafarers, and which is joined daily by hundreds of seafarers from different cities of Ukraine.
Our social movement began in the summer of 2020 with a civic initiative that brought together several seafarers who created a telegram chat.

Our organization aims:

  1. To unite and protect sailors.
  2. To combat the existing system in the field of training and certification of seafarers.
  3. To bring the current system of seafarers’ certification into line with the norms of the 1978 STCW Convention, by involving all specialists in the maritime field.

Dear seafarers,

Nowadays our organization is faced with the fact that a seafarer does not know his rights concerning taking the exams and obtaining documents, which is used by agents and members of the State Qualification Commission. It is impossible to pass the exam by 99.9% independently.

USU offers you its support and full advice at all stages of taking the exams and obtaining documents.


Thank you all for your participation and support!
