Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES test on the subject «Deck Support Oil Tanker». 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: 5.2.9, 6.0.10.
  • Test type: STCW.
  • Department: Deck.
  • Level: Support.
  • Vessel type: Oil Tanker.

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.

«Deck Support Level Oil Tanker» 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. Deck support on an oil tanker primarily involves assisting the ship’s officers in performing their duties related to the maintenance and operation of the vessel’s deck and cargo systems. This may include tasks such as ensuring safe loading and unloading of cargo, monitoring weather conditions, maintaining navigational equipment, conducting safety drills, and performing regular inspections of the ship’s structural integrity.

As an officer, one must also be prepared to take charge in emergency situations and work closely with other crew members to ensure the safety of the vessel and its occupants.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about Deck Support Oil Tanker, 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.
