Here is some stuff I found out when I contacted the Commander that withdrew the exemption on Officers on the DWTF.
Not much effort on their part to find the qualified people I did a search on each company or organization listed and came up with nothing yet.
This way they can claim that thy tried and could not find the proper personnel.
I’m replying to you because you’ve reached out to me for possible employment opportunities due to the recent expiration of exemption for DWTF manning requirements. While I cannot point you to specific companies to contact, I am able to provide you the following agencies which the companies have claimed to have contacted. I hope the below list is helpful to you:
American Tuna Boat Association (San Diego, CA)
Maritime Institute Inc. (San Diego, CA)
Reefer Phils, Inc. (Philippines)
International Organization of Masters
Mates & Pilots (www.bridgedeck.org)
Uliga Shipping Agency (Marshall Islands)
Ocean Care Company (Pohnpei),
Pohnpei-Transportation and Storage (Pohnpei)
Kendall Micronesia Inc. (Marshall Islands)
