Hey all I am new to the forums.
Im trying to get into the osv or inland barge industry. I have completed my AB and lifeboatman course recently. With the sea time I have I will be able to obtain an AB unlimited. I also have a 100 GRT capt. License which I used as a captain on passenger vessels for 3 years. My question is what are some companies to apply for without having any osv or barge experience? Also do you recc. that I actually have the AB/Lifeboat in hand, or begin applying while im still in the process of obtaining it through the NMC? Any info will help!!!
Brody: You're certifiable, Quint! You know that?
Quint: Yeah, yeah, yeah...
There is an awful lot of good info all around this website. Do you have STCW 95? If not I thought that was a prerequisite to get your AB issued nowadays ?

ok..been so long I honestly didn't remember..must have been confused with the fact that most companies probably prefer one to have it.
