As from November 2017, UT-STC is a Marlins Approved Test Center (ATC) as well as a center for Marlins TOSE tests (Test of Spoken English).

This TOSE test is a standardised interview format for assessing the speaking and listening skills of all ranks and nationalities of seafarers.

Used as a stand-alone product, it provides a thorough assessment of the seafarer’s ability to understand and speak English.

Used in conjunction with Marlins English language test, it provides a complete profile of the seafarer’s language proficiency.

The TOSE test exists for Seafarers, Cruise Ship Staff and Offshore Workers.

At UT-STC the following tests can be conducted :

  • ISF Marlins English Language Test for Seafarers;
  • Marlins English Language Test for Cruise Ship Staff;
  • Marlins English Language Test for Offshore Workers;

Upon completion of such test an (approved) Marlins certificate will be issued by UT-STC.

This certificate is accepted by flag state authorities as a proof of language proficiency.
