Not to mention the several state run Maritime Academies and various training schools for different aspects of the industry. Why, there are even some hawsepipers left who worked their way up from unlicensed positions to engine or deck licenses!!

Tom - Lots of folks don't even know that we have a merchant marine. the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point New York is one of our federal academies training students and had 279 incoming students on June27th of 2017. on September 30,2017 they celebrated their 74th birthday. each year students can be appointed from each state if " they have the right stuff' !

Have good day everyone
