Yes, if you passed the test you will get a valid certificate from Safebridge that is manufacturer approved.
Personal data provided is solely for the purpose of establishing identity and allowing subsequent verification of identity (name, date of birth and nationality). Only you or your employer will have access to all the data provided.
Safebridge maintains a candidate and certification database, which will be accessible to the relevant authorities via a QR Code on the certificate to our online database.
We currently require that a ‘proctor’ or adjudicator be present during the test to confirm the identity of the candidate. The individual concerned needs to be nominated in advance and this forms part of the course booking process. Photographic identification is under development and will be made available shortly.
The interpretation of the requirement for type-specific training is determined by your flag state. The courseware is manufacturer approved and the certificate therefore contains the manufacturer logo and the details of the equipment covered. Your name, date of birth and nationality also appear on the certificate.
You will be advised on which question you failed and be able to revisit that topic before taking the test again. The next test will contain a completely different set of questions.
You will be informed immediately that you have passed and a manufacturer approved certificate will be issued automatically by e-mail to your company or to you if you have booked as a private individual.
Testing is expected to take about 60 minutes. It is determined by the nature of the randomly selected test questions, the ability of the candidate and, to a minor extent, by the nature of the internet connection. As yet, no time limit has been implemented.
Upon completion of the course, the “TestMe” feature is activated and you can enter this mode just as you entered the “GuideMe” mode for training. To ensure that the identity of the candidate is correctly established, an adjudicator is required to log in prior to, and be present during, the test. This could be a fleet or training manager. Alternatively Safebridge can provide proctor services at various locations worldwide. Please contact us for this service. The test is taken online.
Yes, there is an online test. In the Safebridge learning mask there are three modes “GuideMe”, “FreePlay” and “TestMe”. The TestMe mode will start the final test.
The IMO and the Flag States do not approve type-specific training courses. Flag States issue their individual guidelines for ECDIS training, where most of them require that the trainer and the course content are manufacturer approved. Safebridge has full manufacturer approval for all courses.
No, it is not. An IMO model 1.27 training is a prerequisite to take the Safebridge type-specific familiarisation course. Generic training is offered by our Sister Company, MSG MarineServe
Yes, it is. It therefore complies with IMO and Flag State requirements for such approval.
The Safebridge courseware is organized in modules and follows the competencies of the IMO Model 1.27 course but takes the candidate through each discipline using the display and controls of the actual ECDIS equipment chosen. Read more …
The content would be covered in ±16 hours in a classroom but the candidate has a 3-week window to complete the course and test.
