Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)
Welcome to the website where you can pass online the CES test on the subject «Engine, Support level». 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.

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 «Engine, Support level». Those questions can be used for competence verification specialist capable of preventing accidental situations related with transporting safety, or also for self-examination.

«Engine, Support level» subject includes theoretical and practical information about advanced training for work on any type of vessel. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. On board a vessel, the technical maintenance of the engine is typically managed by a team of dedicated marine engineers or engine crew members. These professionals are responsible for ensuring the engine’s proper functioning, conducting routine inspections, and performing necessary repairs or adjustments. Maintaining an optimal engine support level is crucial for safe and efficient maritime operations, as it helps prevent breakdowns at sea and ensures compliance with industry regulations, ultimately safeguarding both the vessel and its crew.
