Fitness Assessment Centre

Whilst the existing statutory ENG1 seafarer medical examination is used to assess the seafarer’s medical health, additional procedures are available to assess cardio respiratory fitness, dexterity and manoeuvrability.

Our fitness assessment centre in Glasgow was among the first in the UK to provide a full functional capacity and fitness testing to MCA standards.

Many shipping companies set their own fitness standards and our centre is equipped to carry out such bespoke testing for both seagoing crew and shore-based personnel.

New MCA guidelines can help companies identify when such fitness testing is required and our fitness assessment centre can carry out all levels of testing.

The assessments last approximately 1 hour and an initial ENG1 seafarer medical may be required prior to the test.
