In order to fulfill the USCG requirements for student verification and validation, CMES has chosen Prometric to handle our testing needs.

About the CMES Learning Management System
The CMES Learning Management System (LMS), the first true distance learning system to be approved for training mariners, is a virtual learning environment, which is a suite of functionalities that deliver, track, report on, and manage the learning content, trainee progress, and trainee interactions with the course and instructor. The LMS provides the instructor with the method to deliver course content, monitor student participation, and assess performance.
CMES' LMS embraces four important aspects of distance learning, which had to be addressed to satisfy the USCG: technical delivery standards conformance, privacy, uniform quality of training, and sustainability. The LMS also satisfies industrial and government standards for delivery methods and course content, transfer, and storage standards: SCORM 2004 (Shared Content Object Reference Model); AICC (Aviation Industry CBT Committee); MIS GLS (Industrial Management System Global Learning Consortium); and ARIADNE (Foundation for Knowledge Pool).
