Announcing New Training Bundle For Mariners Working In Foreign Ports

Shipboard Fire Fighting Training Chesapeake Marine Training Institute is pleased to announce that effective immediately, the Virginia-based marine education service will offer a bundled package of courses to professional mariners looking to upgrade their license and ability to work in and out of international ports.

The “International Ports Training Bundle” includes the U.S. Coast Guard-approved courses of Able Seaman with Lifeboatman Limited, STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping) Basic Safety Training and License Application Assistance.

This training bundle costs $2000, a more than $100 savings from the cost of taking each course separately. It includes all materials needed to take each course. Mariners who enroll in this training bundle will still select which course times they enroll in, based on what meets their schedule.

Able Seaman with Lifeboatman Limited is an eight-day course that provides classroom and practical training to mariners who wish to obtain an endorsement to their U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner’s credential as an able seaman with limited lifeboatman. The course covers, among other topics, navigation rules for inland and international waters, seamanship, aids to navigation, nautical terms, ship construction, anchoring, mooring, line handling, maneuvering, pollution control and bulk cargo operations.

The four courses included in this comprehensive professional mariner training bundle takes five days to complete and includes Basic Fire Fighting, Personal Survival Techniques, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities and Elementary First Aid and CPR.
