The MCA Approved (STCW ISPS) Courses include official online assessments as per the requirement under the UK DfT Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA). All CPD Approved Courses include an end-of-course assessment, other courses may or may not have an assessment at the end. If courses include an assessment, or multiple assessments, this will be outlined in the course information on the relevant page on the VIRSEC website.
For MCA Approved (STCW ISPS) Designated Security Duties (PDSD) and Ship Security Officer (SSO) you must have access to someone who will act as your Official Assessment Invigilator [the SSO, Master, or another Officer-ranked Person]. If you don’t have access to one of these, we can provide you with a Remote Invigilation Session, free of charge [this is covered in Invigilation of Course Assessments FAQs].
