5 Make An Expression of Interest

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Boat Safety Scheme Examiner. This page is for those further considering undertaking the entry course.

The expression of interest (EoI) system is now closed (May 2024). When it re-opens, EoI in the Examiner Training Programme, are made without obligations on either party. We will only accept people onto the next stage who fit the descriptions of qualifications, experience, skills, aptitudes, attitudes and having a full realisation of the business environment and operational demands made of BSS Examiner. We believe the responsibilities are considerable and so we think it needs quite special people to fit the profile of the modern BSS examiner.

Along with your personal contact details please provide a brief (one page) CV or supporting statement specific to the BSS Examiner role (Only .doc/.docx, or .pdf formats are accepted). The statement or CV should indicate succinctly how you meet our requirements, including details of your marine experience and marine skills together with your related technical background and qualifications.

If we think your CV indicates a shortfall in meeting the requirements we will let you know. Likewise, if your CV indicates that it is fine to continue to the next step along the pathway to become a BSS Examiner, we will likely make an invitation to provide further information for our further consideration before a formal offer of a place on the Programme is made. Naturally there is no guarantee of a place, and again while we will do our best to support you through the Programme, hopefully with success, we cannot guarantee your assessment results.

If you are keen to become a BSS Examiner on one of our future courses then please read all the information on pages 1-4 to understand the considerable demands and responsibilities that come with the role.

May 2024: The Expression of Interest (EoI) form is closed until further notice.

This situation is being reviewed in September 2024.

When the EoI form for re-opens you will be asked to provide a current CV and statement that will indicate clearly how you match the required marine competencies and marine/boat experience.
