The SafeGulf accreditation process will provide a Test-Out feature. The test provided under the Test-Out is to help assure the current students have adequate training and knowledge from training already provided that complies with the SafeGulf syllabus.
The test consists of 100 questions selected from material in the SafeGulf syllabus. An accredited Training Provider will conduct the test. Students must make a score of 90% to pass. Students who fail must take SafeGulf Orientation provided by an accredited Training Provider. The Training Provider must record the failing Test-Out grade (F) in the SafeGulf database and maintain the documentation.
Prior to a student being allowed to take a Test-Out, the Training Provider will search the SafeGulf database to determine if student is eligible to take a Test-Out. If the student has a prior documented Test-Out failure, the student will be directed to take the SafeGulf Orientation provided by an accredited Training Provider.
The Training Provider must record where the student received their initial training and the number of years the student has worked offshore. The student must sign the document verifying the information.
