How long after joining SIU does it take to acquire a B book and also, as someone who is just starting(C book), what type of job can I get with the following endorsements: AB limited, STCW basic training, VPDSD, RFPNW, Able seafarers Deck, Tankerman PIC, ADV Oil & ADV Chemical tanker cargo??
If you do the one year apprenticeship through the school you automatically get a B book. That has to be way faster simply because of what a big deal they make in the newsletter about getting it. https://www.seafarers.org/training-and-careers/admissions/apprentice-program-overview/
