Spend your time on the right applicant

Since 1999, our CES test is the most used maritime knowledge assessment by a considerable margin, and it’s easy to see why! All of our easy-to-use recruitment tools reduce the amount of time you have to spend screening candidates.

Create a full career plan in a simple way

With a growing need for experienced seafarers, our focus is on building competence and retaining valued crewmembers. We do this by building a defined career plan that drives promotion and keeps staff motivated.

Do training onboard or online, anytime

In 1996, we began building our extensive library, becoming pioneers of maritime e-learning. As the leaders in this industry, we specialise in creating educational products that help you achieve effective compliance to ISM, STCW and other IMO standards.

Manage and track training progress on a global scale

Applied on more than 10,000 vessels worldwide, our powerful management tools keep you on top of all training across the fleet. The results then follow the seafarer from ship-to-ship and are readily available for management online.


We believe hiring to be the most important first step towards the organizations success. Finding and hiring the best qualified candidate for the job is what pushes your business forward.

Recruitment is the first step in the training cycle, but the process of hiring the best person in a timely and cost-effective manner can be extremely challenging. As part of our complete training solution, we have developed advanced tools to help you reach your goals when hiring and maintaining a competent workforce.

Allowing customers to tailor assessments to reflect their own operational standards, CES is a comprehensive knowledge database with over 5,000 multiple-choice questions specific to the functional areas of STCW. Accessible online and offline from anywhere around the world, CES is easy-to-use for seafarers and HR departments worldwide!

Used as a support tool during the recruitment of junior seafarers and the screening of students for maritime studies, APRO is a psychometric assessment program cultivated in partnership with the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute and supported by the University of Oslo, DNV and other key players in the shipping industry.

Career development

To have a plan is always important. It can make a difference both in operation and in safety matters. Career planning motivates your employees to reach goals and aim higher. Who stayed on track and are ready for promotion? This is ultimately the essence of a career plan.

Career development - exploration & commitment

Because organizations have to stay current in technology, business practices, and in advances in their industry, an organization that embraces career development processes can keep employees informed of advancements and maintain their competitive edge in the market.

It is important to provide a clear path for each seafarer, encouraging them to aim for the next step on the career ladder. This must be clearly defined and easy to follow. It is important that a seafarer’s time is used as efficiently as possible and only the individuals training are clearly defined for their next rank step.

Career planning and competence management has become an increasing important strategy for many shipping companies to quality assure that seafarers are properly trained and verified to be competent before promoted.

Seagull developed a comprehensive software program in 2005 which is updated and expanded twice a year, containing all functions and reporting facilities to efficient define and administrate career development in any shipping companies.

Training is Value! In the long term, it is not what is spent on training, it is what could be lost if you do not. In fact, every $1 spent on training results in $30 increased productivity – IBM Value of Training, 2014.

Competent people make the difference.

Competent, experienced and well-trained crew make the ship safe. It is important that we do all we can to provide the industry with well educated, trained and motivated seafarers. Otherwise the whole system will collapse.

Available online and offline, the Seagull Training System (STS) is a comprehensive suite of administration, training content, competence management and software tools that can be scaled to meet your company and fleet requirements.

Providing you with the ability to monitor fleet training activity effectively, the Seagull Training Administrator (STA) gives you on-board and online access to a central database that stores individual training profiles for each seafarer.

Accessible through their own personal profile throughout their careers, seafarers are able to review this at anytime from anywhere in the world, empowering crews to take responsibility for their own career paths!
