Exams tested on simulators

Our partner Maritieme Academie Harlingen is leading the work package on quality assurance and quality control, aiming quality management of examination. Recently model exams were tested on the state-of-the-art simulators at the newly established Maritime Academy inland waterway training & research center in Harlingen. The tests were carried out in the presence of CBR, the Dutch authority on (most) theoretical and practical exams for licenses on the road, in the air and on the waterways.

The CCV division of the CBR is developing and maintaining all the exams for the inland shipping. At this moment the CCV is working on the adaptation of the current exams, in accordance with the new guidelines. CCV also supervises the implementation of certified courses and practical tests.

Katja van den Beld of the CBR: “It was a very educational and fruitful test day! For us an eye-opener on how the practical exams will look like in the future. It will certainly make a contribution to professionalism.”
