# Crew Evaluation Test online for seamans about Crude Oil Washing

Welcome to the website where you can pass online the Computer Based Test (CBT) also known as Crew Evaluation System (CES) on the subject «Crude Oil Washing». Practice like this will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of online studying and appraisal practice. CES/CBT based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES & CBT 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 «Crude Oil Washing». Those questions can be used for competence verification specialist capable of preventing accidental situations related with transporting safety, or also for self-examination.

«Crude Oil Washing» subject includes theoretical and practical information about crude oil washing process. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel, provides to follow requirements of crude oil washing process, detect malfunctions and take necessary actions on them.

On this site Crew Evaluation System Test on the subject «Crude Oil Washing» contains 28 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.
