Ship Safety Automated Seafarer Examination Question System
[Automated Certification & Examination System ( ACES )]

As a result of concerns raised at the International maritime Organization ( IMO ) convention on counterfeit and fraudulent use of certificates, there is a new international requirement, under the Standard on Training, Certification and Watchkeeping ( STCW ), to register, record and produce a new digitized Canadian Certificate of Competency for ships’ deck and engineer officers. Transport Canada is the certifying body responsible for Canada’s approval of the new STCW through IMO . The existing certificates of competency (approximately 40,000) will be replaced with digitized certificates with a photo to accommodate new requirements under STCW -95.
