Personal certification scheme questionnaire

26 April 2018

The German Hydrographic Society (DHyG), an active member of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS), is currently conducting a review of the existing and planned personal recognition schemes operating within the hydrographic profession.

The survey considers both the well-established Cat A/B accreditation of academic courses as well as alternative certification pathways within the industry.

The project is being led by Prof Dr Harald Sternberg, at the HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU), in close cooperation with the DHyG.

A meaningful outcome for this study is entirely dependent upon the support and contribution of the international hydrographic community.

DHyG would therefore greatly appreciate your cooperation to ensure the survey provides the valuable launch pad for an IFHS-driven initiative to develop a joint recognition scheme.

Please take a few moments to download and complete the questionnaire below and return it to by Wednesday 23rd May 2018.
