Deerfield Beach, Florida (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
Complimentary higher education matching service [CollegeComplete.com(877-543-2655) today announced that it now includes crucial information for those looking to work in the adult literacy and remedial education professions. Those looking to enter this expanding workforce can now go to http://www.collegecomplete.com/water-transportation-occupations and see government statistics about education needs, job growth and salary.
Jobs in this field include deck officers, mates, captains, pilots, ship engineers, marine oilers, sailors, motorboat operators, pumpmen, boatswain and many more. As of April 15, 2009, mariners on board most ships have to obtain two credentials, a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) and a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC).
“It has always been our goal to provide as much information as possible to someone looking to go back to school”, said Dan Haim, CEO of College Complete. “It is our hope that this information will inspire people to get the education they need to attain the goals that they have for themselves, we are ready to help at NO COST."
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics excellent job opportunities are expected, especially for marine officers. Entry, training, and educational requirements for many water transportation occupations are established and regulated by the U.S. Coast Guard. Entry-level workers are classified as ordinary seamen or deckhands. Workers take some basic training, lasting a few days, in areas such as first aid and firefighting. There are two paths of education and training for a deck officer or an engineer: applicants must either accumulate thousands of hours of experience while working as a deckhand, or graduate from one of seven merchant marine academies in the United States. In both cases, applicants must pass a written examination. It is difficult to pass the examination without substantial formal schooling or independent study. The academies offer a 4-year academic program leading to a bachelor-of-science degree, a MMC endorsement (issued only by the Coast Guard) as a third mate (deck officer) or third assistant engineer (engineering officer), and, if the person chooses, a commission as ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve, Merchant Marine Reserve, or Coast Guard Reserve. With experience and additional training, third officers may qualify for higher rank.
