Re: Coast Guard positions for already licensed?

Everytime I go to the government job site, I always see jobs for the West Coast for Deck Officers, Never for the East Coast. Is the West Coast Expanding or Just no one wants to stay?

Re: FRC course for OSV's in Canada

Yeah I know, what is up with that MI Medical? Why can't you just use the TC Medical. It's just another money grab that you got to pay the doctors. It's bad enough that MI is one of the most expensive placed to attend.

Re: Algoport Sinking

This is just another example of a Canadian Company sending out Canadian Ships to China for a Fore Body Refit, when It could have been done in Canada. CSL and Upper Lakes and doing there Fore body Refits in Canada.

Re: FRC course for OSV's in Canada

No, the FRC course requried by the offshore is hot the same the the Coast Guard Course. The Coast Guard Course is NOT STCW certified. You have to take the Course at an approved Trainging Establishment and make sure its STCW
