Safety Impact Cert & Vessel Crew Member Cert

Update: I spoke to TXDOT and they are both Internal certifications, so there is nothing to get prior to being hired.

I am applying for a TXDOT ferry job in TX and they are requiring a Safety Impact Certificate and a Vessel Crew Member Certificate. I have no idea how or where to get these certificates. Anyone have any ideas?

The last thing we need are more time and money wasting feckless pseudo safety certificates.

Sounds like something they use to make sure a favored few are only allowed to get the jobs.

I’ve never heard of them.

Google says that the Texas “Impact Certificate “ is something related to a drivers license that one can get by watching a free 1 hour video.

Google couldn’t find the Vessel Crewmember Certificate.

I thought Texas was supposed to be the home of the free and the brave, not the Nanny State shoving pseudo safety nonsense down whussies’ throats.

I guess too many liberal Californicators have invaded and are ruining Texas.

I think we should just give Texas back to Mexico.

Probably something required by Texas DOT for all employees in case of the impact cert. 2nd one definitely sounds like gatekeeping. As much as I hate the amount of California in Texas there’s plenty of good ole boy protectionism to go around. Look at every Pilot organization.
