Apprentice Mate (Steersman)

The Apprentice Mate (Steersman) Upgrade course is designed for those mariners working towards becoming a Mate on tugboats. The course covers:

* The rules and regulations for Uninspected Towing Vessels and Barges,
* Towing gear, fittings and towing terminology,
* Tugboat design, capabilities and towing hazards, and
* Towing operations safety.

This 16-hour “in lieu of exam” course is available to those who currently hold a license as Master Not More Than 200 Gross Tons or have satisfied the examination requirements for a license as Master Not More Than 200 Gross Tons within the previous 12 months.

The course was informative, well presented and interesting on subjects that most of us have been trained in before. Learned some new things. Thanks for a great job!
