Assessments: A predictive power!


Sailing a ship is a complex and challenging task. It’s not only a matter of navigation but due to the technical complexity of a ship, diversity of the crew and the competences of the crew as well as the increasing demands of charterers and stakeholders, the role of the crew has changed.

(Senior) Officers are responsible for the safety on board and efficient operations. They need to monitor equipment, analyse and evaluate information and react to malfunctions when these occur. For this purpose they need to communicate with superintendents, authorities, terminal personnel, charterers, owners and other crew members.

It’s often thought that compliance is the main contributor to safe operations, however competency is of a much higher importance. Here is where assessment comes in.


The outcome of the assessment can be used for a.o.:

  • Selection purposes.
  • Promotion.
  • Personal development planning.
  • Determining training needs.
  • Composition of teams on board.

Our approach

Based on an intensive intake with our client we develop a tailor made program. These assessments can be carried out on the following basis:

  • Simulator assessment to assess knowledge…
  • Skills and attitude (also for or in teams).
  • Psychological assessment for an objective and interpersonal analysis.
  • Written assessment to assess certain specific knowledge.

Working environment

An assessment in working environment gives an employee the possibility to show her/his capacities, skills, competences, knowledge and performance. This is also possible within our (full mission) simulators. Especially the full mission bridge simulators, full mission engine room simulators, offshore simulator and inland water simulators are a perfect training environment to assess the associated skills, capacities and knowledge.
