The project will develop a platform for various ranks of seafarers. The platform will have an option to investigate acceptance/endorsement of sea-going certificates. ENDORSEME project aims to:

  • Identify the problems associated with recognition/endorsement of certificates in a questionnaire-based needs analysis and information based on the investigation of undiscovered areas,
  • Develop a platform and complementary online tool for seafarers, shipping companies, MET institution to identify whether the certificates of seafarers are accepted/endorsed by one country to another.

ENDORSEME platform will cross-reference the certificates available to seafaring profession to provide a higher quality system that is suited to each individual member state. It will also enable MET programmes to be kept up to date with changes to requirements locally and internationally with minimum disruption to other core areas of the programme. The quality assurance system of ENDORSEME platform will enable the good practices to be seen and transferred to other member states as well as maintaining a high quality of education, training and assessment.
