The recent drilling moratorium from the Whitehouse has made it even more difficult searching for maritime employment. With the current maritime security issues, there must be a growing demand for merchant mariners with an additional security background. I am a 100 Ton Master (GL and Inland) with an AB Unlimited any waters MMD. I have an extensive 18 year security background with the NY State Department of Corrections which included ongoing weapons training. I was also vetted by the BATF and approved for an explosives possessor’s certification in subsequent employment. Can anyone direct me to specific companies where these maritime and security qualifications might be in demand collectively?
