The second joint meeting of the examination commissions of CESNI Member States was held on 15 September 2021. For the first time, examiners in approved training programmes joined members of examination commissions who carry out exams under the responsibility of administrative authorities. Initially planned to take place in Berlin, where the German Presidency of the EU Council had kindly invited experts to convene in 2020, the meeting took place online due to the current health situation.
40 experts from 11 CESNI Member States, three River Commissions (Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine, Danube Commission and Sava Commission) and the European Commission took part in this important forum.
The main objective was to enable informative and useful exchanges on the European Standard for Qualifications in Inland Navigation (ES-QIN) and more specifically its standards on examination, in view of the future application of the new set of standards for professional qualifications from January 2022.
