Welcome to Maritime Examination Center

Since its foundation in 1972, the Arab Academy for Science & Technology and Maritime Transport has been keen on developing both the educational and examination systems in order to cope with the latest trends of technology. In cooperation with highly specialized and experienced educational institutes, the Academy was able toassemblequalified cadres of high calibre on both academic and practical aspects in several fields. Thus, the Academy stands today as one of the most distinguished academic institutions among many other international ones.

In accordance with the international agreement signed in 1979 between the Egyptian Ministry of Maritime Transport and the United Nations represented by the Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) and by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Maritime Examination Centre was established. The Centre features as a totally independent entity from the educational and training sectors to ensure its compliance with the required measures in order to guarantee the highest levels of proficiency in obtaining the different certificates of competency(COC). This could only be assured through assessing Captains, Officers and Marine Engineers under the supervision of the Egyptian Authority for Maritime Safety (EAMS) which accredits the examination results and issues the COCs in return. The COC is a permission to work on board merchant vessels and different marine utility units according to the Egyptian Ministerial decree and the requirements of IMO and STCW78 and amendments.

For the past years, the Maritime Examination Centre has been developed to reach the highest levels of efficiency to become a pioneer in the process of setting exams. The Centre organises and creates the examinations for different Marine and Engineering COCs levels via a developed computerized Question and Model Answer bank which entails high security and reduces the human factor interference. This progressfruitfully resulted in the obtaining of the ISO 9001-2015 under the authority of the DNV classification society, in applying the modern techniques of Marine and Engineering assessments and in coping with marine transport technological advancements.
