Current test contains Seagull CES questions on the subject «Controlling Operation of the Ship and Care for Persons On Board». The 3rd officer is responsible for ensuring that all safety equipment is in good working order and conducting regular safety drills. They are also responsible for maintaining the vessel’s safety management system and ensuring compliance with all relevant safety regulations. The 3rd officer may be involved in the vessel’s security plan and ensuring compliance with relevant security regulations. Also he is responsible for keeping a lookout on the bridge and maintaining the vessel’s course and speed as directed by the Officer of the Watch (OOW). They also assist the OOW in conducting regular navigational checks and maintaining communication with other vessels and shore-based authorities.
