Does anyone know of any additional training that can be taken for someone looking for entry level employment. I start STCW on monday at CMTI, but im looking for anything else i could take to help my chances. Had my first interview last week with a drug test, and everything went well, but no call back yet. Any advice or help is welcomed.
I believe CMTI also has a deckhand orientation program. Teaches you the basics of line handling and shipboard operations/expectations.
If you have no other background in the industry, that [I]could[/I] be a big help. Let you know a little better what to expect, and maybe not make such a fool of yourself on your first boat.
That’s a nice little school specializing in limited tonnage vessels. Look for the huge American flag as you drive down the road, or you might drive past.
Great, thanks so much. I stopped at school today ( i live about 30 minutes away) , and got registered for stcw on monday. I will register for next deck hand orientation as well. Thanks again for the help.

Which “STCW” are you referring to?
BST with Firefighting
Change of plans…i registered for the deckhand orientation starting 4/4-4/8, which will give me my first aid and cpr certs. Then i registered for the STCW beginning on 4/25 which will give me BST and firefighting. Any other courses anyone can think of please let me know. Thanks in advance.
