Obtaining a certificate for the carriage of passengers by inland waterway

Summary

Currently, we no longer organize professional qualification exams with the exception of the dangerous goods transport expert.
On January 18, 2022, a new directive on the recognition of professional qualifications in the field of inland navigation (directive 2017/2397) will enter into force.
This provides for a series of additional requirements such as for example: a practical test for the driver as well as for the passenger navigation expert.
In the course of 2022, the Walloon region aims to organize four professional qualification exams, namely:

  • sailor ;
  • driver ;
  • radar navigation ;
  • expert in passenger navigation.

The examination relating to the Rhine license and knowledge of sectors should be scheduled in the course of 2023.
