Egyptian Maritime Examination Center (EMEC)
Based on the importance of the examination and assessment as the quality tool for education and training, the Academy since its inception in 1972, has worked hard towards improving examinations and its regulations. In this regard, the academy succeeded in initiating UNDP Project EGY/79/016/F/01/19 that stipulated the establishment of the Egyptian Maritime Examination Center responsible for conducting Proficiency Certificate exams for sea personnel. The project authorized the Examination Center, which represents the Ministry of Maritime Transport in Egypt, to act on its behalf in the implementation of the STCW 1978 assessments. Within this context, an independent Center for examinations was established in 1979 emphasizing the following concepts: 1. Setting the required controls to maintain and achieve the standards determined by the IMO for various marine certificates. 2. Commitment to conducting examinations in compliance with the laws and regulations stipulated by the government of Arab Republic of Egypt which issues marine competency and proficiency certificates.
For more than 25 years, the Examination Center has witnessed steady progress and developments started by building up a comprehensive questions and model answers Databank prepared and filtered by a distinguished host of maritime transport specialists from the academy and from maritime transport sector.
