During peace time only a graduate of Finnish National Defence University can achieve the rank of Commodore, and even during war time reserve officers may achieve the rank of Commodore only under anomalous circumstances.
Other uses in Finland
In Finnish Yacht clubs a chairman/CEO is usually called a Commodor, a tradition originating from England. While in some countries Commodore is also a title held by a senior captain within a shipping company, it's not used by Finnish shipping companies.
