Hello guys! I need some advice from people who have been through on position as a Tankerman. I just got an interview session from SGS Petroleum Service TCA. They have a career academy for their Tankerman. It cost about $13,000.00 to get into their program. While I’m not concern about the money, I found out it’s so highly competitive that a lot of people are signing up for it and I also found out they will choose only 10 out of all. I really have no idea how many people applied.
Anyways, I just got my Twic Card which is needed to work on maritime. Any advice on where I can apply or go for training as Tankerman? I was offer to be train as a tanker by an individual for $5000 but the only problem is that he lives all the way in Washington and I’m not about to travel that long distance just to get some training. I’ve completed some courses in basic fight fighting and all their is left to get to hands on contact training in discharging, loading and unloading and transfers. Any ideas and advice is greatly appreciated!
