Our Mission

Providing a professional platform allowing to look beyond the traditional means in identifying and securing international talent.

CTI, a pioneer in the maritime recruiting and placement sector has partnered with Boost, a leader in mobile language learning and hospitality training, together developed the first purpose-built English assessment application for the cruise industry, with an emphasis on speaking, the most critical communication skill needed on a ship.

By design, each assessment benchmarks the required English skill levels for the desired position in combination with elementary safety standards. Users are able to access the application via mobile, tablet, or desktop (Chromebook) version.

The scoring is based on the internationally recognized standard CEFR scale (The Common European Framework of Reference) for languages.
