Create an account, and request access to the Oceanic Endorsement, Study the material, then request to do the quiz, then you do a written question section, and feedback will be given, you then respond to the feed back, this can keep going untill you and the Instructor have reached a satisfactory level there is no Practical assessment.

The VATPAC assessment is the one that most will go through.
