Course Length: 8 hours
Recommended: Mariners holding an OICNW endorsed license (STCW II/1 or II/3)
San Jacinto College Maritime has access to three state-of-the-art full mission bridge simulators that specializes in towing vessels and a designated examiner that can help you with your advancement to Mate (Pilot) of Towing or Master of Towing. We help provide a platform to complete both the maneuvering requirements as well as discussion based assessments in the Towing Officer Assessment Record (TOAR).
Our TOAR class is reserved for experienced mariners. Mariners holding an OICNW endorsed license (STCW II/1 or II/3) can complete most all assessments in the TOAR with our program. If you do not hold an OICNW endorsement, you may still join use and our experienced staff will complete all maneuvering and discussion based assessments as possible. In addition, the extra sea service needed to upgrade to a mate or master of towing from a lower level license is often a surprise to many. For these reasons, we request to open a line of communication so we can better assess your needs. Please contact us at 281-459-5483 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk to you regarding your specific situation.
