Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES CBT CD-0265 test on the subject «Shore Based Assessment». This site will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of open information, where you can find questions as well as answers for them. CES/CBT based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES tests developed for evaluating seaman basic knowledge by Seagull Company (rebranded as «OTG»), is an evaluating online-tool, used for revealing any professional preparation needed in specific fields of knowledge, defined by STCW.

CES tests have proven themselves as good tools for the selection and recruitment process, as well as advancing the level of knowledge of the current officers and crew. Ocean Technologies Group use various subjects for question creation, which includes:

  • Crowd and Crisis Management;
  • Integrated Navigation System (INS);
  • Ballast water management;
  • Handling and Stowage;
  • Vessel operation management and safety;
  • Marine engineering;
  • Maintenance and repair, etc.

«Shore Based Assessment» subject includes theoretical and practical information about safety working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. Shore Based Assessment (SBA) is an evaluation conducted on land for maritime or aviation activities to ensure safety and readiness. It involves assessing the capabilities of equipment, vessels, or aviation facilities before their deployment at sea or in the air. SBA aims to identify potential risks, verify compliance with regulations, and optimize operational efficiency. This assessment is crucial for the overall success and security of maritime and aviation operations.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about SBA, and serve as a database of questions and answers, using which seafarer can prepare to exams for getting certificate of competence, or just to challenge yourself with knowledge in this theme.
