You must register via a GMDSS examination centre.
The practical exam takes place on the equipment used by the candidate during his or her training.
There is a €73.39 registration fee, which is non-refundable.
In case of an annulment more than one week before the exam or upon presentation of a medical certificate, the registration fee can be moved to another date.
To pass, one must obtain 50% of the points for each subject and 60% in total. No exoneration will be granted for the practical part.
In case of a re-examination, an exemption is only granted for the theoretical parts for which the candidate obtained 70% or more and if the candidate does so within one year after the original examination.
In the event of a re-examination, the practical part must always be redone.
