Third party certification for compliance to ISO/PAS 23678:2020 issued by Bureau Veritas

CRALOG is an authorized service provider. We are pioneers and have shaken the industry by ending the lifeboat training academy monopoly, as our training academy is opened to other Authorized Service providers, who might not be able to deliver internal training but are already familiar with using a program of external training provided  by either equipment manufacturers or other Authorized service providers.

All non experienced technicians enroll in a 3-week training program, followed by one year of on-the-job training under supervision.

The candidates then return for a one-week assessment, as required by an international recognized certification program, and if deemed competent, they receive a Level II certificate. From then, they can work unsupervised for 3 years.

Most technicians are experienced but may have lost their entitlement to perform inspections when their certificates are linked to commercial agreements with lifeboat equipment manufacturers. They hold evidence of their certification according to a manufacturer established certification program, supplemented with several years of practical experience.

The candidates attend a one week re-assessment as required by an international recognized certification program. If deemed competent, they receive a Level II certificate. From then,  they can work unsupervised for 3 years, after which they return for Initial re certification and assessment.


In addition we offer

Training for competent persons carrying out lifting appliance inspections

Training for office staff, auditors and surveyors to raise awareness and understand statutory requirements, as adopted by SOLAS member States and enforced by Recognized organizations (classification societies) under the RO-Code* and the survey guidelines under the Harmonized system of survey and certification (HSSC) , resolution A.1140(31)

*The RO Code defines the functional, organizational and control requirements that apply to ROs conducting statutory certification and services performed under mandatory IMO instruments such as the SOLAS Convention
