Free Seagull STCW CES tests and answers for marine specialists

A large number of CES tests for preparing sailors for exams and certification.

CES tests

The Crew Evaluation System (CES) or maritime tests are a complex of examinations aimed at assessing the basic knowledge of maritime specialists in areas specified by the STCW Convention. The test series was developed by Seagull (later renamed Ocean Technologies Group) by Norwegians in 1995, and the online version of the test emerged in 2010 as a e-learning platform. This test is highly popular and widely recognized among sailors. Over 350 companies worldwide utilize the CES testing system to evaluate the competence of their crew members.

Each Seagull maritime test consists of a specific number of modules (CBT modules or CBT CDs), which collectively constitute the entire content of the test. For example, the CES exam for engine cadet may include modules related to ship’s equipment, mechanisms, and devices. However, besides these specialized modules, such a test will undoubtedly be supplemented with general, fundamental modules that every sailor should be familiar with, such as Fire-fighting, Survival, First Aid, and so on.

How to prepare to CES exam?

To successfully pass the Seagull test online, sailors need to prepare carefully. First and foremost, it is recommended to improve their English language skills. Even experienced professionals in the maritime industry can get confused by the question descriptions and provide incorrect answers without a good command of the English language. For preparation, various e-learning tools, platforms and applications can be utilized. The next important step would be to refresh the knowledge relevant to their specific specialization.

Usually, sailors search for answers to CES test questions on the internet, hoping to memorize them, but this approach can be time-consuming. The ideal option is considered to practice on specialized simulators available in various maritime training institutions or universities. There are numerous programs that can be used for preparation, such as Seagull Assistant, Seagull Simulator, Popeye test apps, and more. Additionally, on the internet, one can find and download answers to CES tests in PDF or DOC formats.

But we offer an alternative – you can practice directly on our website, where CES tests for seafarers and their answers are available to you. You can take the tests again and again at your convenience, for example, during a coffee break or while traveling. We understand that sailors need assistance when taking the CES test, which is why we provide specialized e-learning programs and tests specifically for them. Our goal is to ultimately help sailors pass the test successfully and obtain the necessary certifications.
