Yailing a ship is a complex and challenging task. It is not only a matter of navigation: due to the technical complexity of ships, the diversity and competencies of personnel, as well as the increasing demands of charterers and stakeholders, the role of the crew has changed.

Officers are responsible for efficient operations and safety on board. They monitor equipment, analyse and evaluate information, and react to malfunctions when these occur. Therefore, officers communicate with superintendents, authorities, terminal personnel, charterers, owners and other crew members.

Although it is believed that compliance is the defining factor in safe operations, in actuality, competency plays a much more significant role – this is where assessment comes in.


The outcome of the assessment can be used for:

  • Selection purposes
  • Promotion.
  • Personal development planning.
  • Determining training needs
  • Structuring onboard teams

        Working environment

        An assessment of the working environment affords employees the opportunity to showcase their skills, competencies, knowledge and performance. This is also possible within our full mission simulators. The full mission bridge, engine room, offshore and inland water simulators are especially well-suited to assess relevant abilities.


        Our approach

        Following a comprehensive intake session with our clients, we develop a tailor-made programme, allowing assessments to be carried out based on the following criteria:

        • Simulator assessment measuring knowledge
        • Aptitude and attitude (also for or in teams)
        • Psychological assessment providing objective and interpersonal analysis
        • Written exam evaluating specific elements of knowledge.
