Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can pass online the CES test on the subject «Radio Communication GMDSS». Practice like this will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of online studying and appraisal practice. 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.

Current test contains Seagull CES questions on the subject «Radio Communication GMDSS». Those questions can be used for competence verification specialist capable of preventing accidental situations related with transporting safety, or also for self-examination.

«Radio Communication GMDSS» subject includes theoretical and practical information about advanced training for work on all types of the vessels. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. Officer radio communication duties under the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) involve ensuring that all communications equipment on board the vessel is functioning properly and that the crew is trained to operate it in case of an emergency. Some specific duties include monitoring distress frequencies, responding to distress calls, maintaining logs and etc.

On this site Crew Evaluation System Test on the subject «Radio Communication GMDSS» contains 198 questions you need to answer with no possibility to go back to previous question. Therefore, we recommend carefully reading each question and making decision with no hurry. In case you have some difficulty answering, you have also possibility to request a hint.
