I am a deep sea guy (Unl. Master), I need to learn ;
One institute at Marina Del Rey say they issue towing endorsement cert. with $65.- for 4 hrs class.
They are under USCG coverage -I mean I found the institute at CG approved schools.
And I heard from Tugboat guys, that “you got to have the master of towing not the towing endorsement.”
The other source said " You got to be an observer for 30days and USCG give you TOAR"
Please advise if the towing endorsement issued at Marina Del Rey can be good enough
when they hire mate/master of towing vessels.
The advertisement was like 1600ton/Unlimited master, mate with “towing endorsement”.
