Knocking on Doors in Louisiana

Good news, again, this week!
A mariner checked in on Sunday and got hired on Monday morning, took his physical, and started classes, Tuesday. ( Environmental, Orientation, Rigging, and then Safe Gulf next week) before going out on a boat.
Don’t forget if you are coming down to get a job as an AB, it is best to have your RFPNW before you come. You can still get hired somewhere, but not with all companies.
As always, I will be very happy to assist you throughout this process or just provide nice accommodations for your stay. I ask that you check in on a Sunday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00 and I will spend an hour or so with you going over all of the companies, contact personnel, planning routes each day, a few extra tips, and questions you may have about anything else.
I still offer a discounted rate of $75/night to mariners looking for work and/or taking classes in the area at Faulk Safety, now called Rely On Nutec in Houma, or the Marine Training Institute (DP Classes) in Gray, LA.
Please call me at (985) 537- 6773 or email me at claudettelp@charter.net, anytime to make reservations.

jdcavo,
Thanks for explaining the requirements for RFPNW on a new thread, “Do I still need RFPNW?”
I appreciate you taking the time to discuss the requirements, needed, as it can be a bit confusing for some mariners.

GOOD NEWS, TODAY!

Mariner checks in yesterday and gets hired as an AB Unlimited with a great company, this morning.
Interesting fact is that he was taking a class at MPT in Fort Lauderdale and someone suggested he contact me, stay at my B&B and he told him that I would help him along the way. This guy was from the Virgin islands, but he made it happen. He did have RFPNW so the company was impressed.

Beginning Jan. 2020, I will still offer a discounted rate of $85/night (Sun. through Friday, $425) to mariners looking for work and/or taking classes in the area at Faulk Safety, now called Rely On Nutec in Houma, or the Marine Training Institute (DP Classes) in Gray, LA. .

I am very happy to have meet you! Thank you for steering me in the right direction! I still can’t believe that on my very first day I got a job with your help!
After so many applications and phone call to robots and auto reply msg I was ready to give up. I am happy that my friend told me about you when I took class at MPT in Florida. You have been great help!

I wish you the best and am grateful for me staying at your B and B!
