Questions and answers to Crew Evaluation System Test about Marine Lubricants

Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the Computer Based Test (CBT) also known as Crew Evaluation System (CES) on the subject «Marine Lubricants». 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/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 «Marine Lubricants». Those questions can be used for competence verification specialist capable of preventing accidental situations related with transporting safety, or also for self-examination.

«Marine Lubricants» subject includes theoretical and practical information about oil and lubricants used on ship. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel, provides to have understanding in lubricant materials, which can sufficiently help in detecting malfunctions and repairing, as well maintain the machinery for running stably.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES CBT (Crew Evaluation System/Computer Based Test) test about Marine Lubricants, 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.
