Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES test on the subject «Radio Communication, GMDSS». 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 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.

  • Version: 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0.0.
  • Test type: STCW.
  • Duty: Officer.
  • Level: Radio communication.
  • Area: GMDSS.

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.

«Radio Communication, GMDSS» 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. Radio communication is a critical aspect of maritime operations, and the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) was developed to enhance safety and improve communication in distress situations. The GMDSS is an internationally recognized set of regulations that standardizes radio communication procedures, equipment, and frequencies across the globe. Officer radio communication duties may include monitoring distress frequencies, responding to distress calls, coordinating with other vessels and etc.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about Radio Communication, GMDSS, 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.
