Our services

TOWING OFFICERS ASSESSMENT RECORDS (TOAR)

We provide training and have access to towing vessels and designated examiners that can help you with your advancement to Mate (Pilot) of Towing or Master of Towing. Since 2009, we have helped many mariners by providing a platform to complete both the maneuvering requirements as well as discussion based assessments in the Towing Officer Assessment Record. Our program utilizes a working tug and barge with a full crew in the presence of a USCG approved designated examiner.

USCG Approved Courses

We are pleased to provide a suite of ONLINE USCG Approved Courses in partnership with US Captain's Training. You will be able to study at your own pace from the comfort of your own home or from work. When you are ready to test, USCT makes it easy with USCG Approved ONLINE final exams! Courses include Apprentice Mate Steersman, OUPV Original Issue, 100 GRT Master, 200 GRT Upgrade, AB and many others!

PROFESSIONAL MARINER CREDENTIAL COUNSELING

Diamond Marine Services has made it even easier to submit your original, raise-in-grade, or renewal applications. We will work with you to ensure you have all the proper paperwork in place to achieve your renewal or raise-in-grade without experiencing delays with the National Maritime Center and USCG REC offices.

TOAR Training

Our program is reserved for experienced mariners. Mariners holding an OICNW endorsed license (STCW II/1 or II/3) can complete all the assessments in the TOAR with our program. If you do not hold an OICNW endorsement, you may be able to join us but we may not be able to complete the TOAR in its entirety. 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. Mariners holding licenses LESS THAN 500 GRT (master or mate) or those without an OICNW endorsement are accepted on a case by case basis. For more information about this, please feel free to email or call us. 

Do you also need the observation sea service?

We are pleased to be able to offer those who need 30 days of training and observation a platform by which to accumulate the required sea service in addition to the TOAR. For more information, please visit out TOAR page or call us at 877-335-6341 to see if this better fits your needs.

Tired of sifting through CFRs and NMC checklists wondering if you have enough sea time or completed the necessary requirements for an upgrade? Have you experienced delays or even have a license expire due to an issue with a previous application? Diamond Marine Services offers a unique service with former National Maritime Center evaluators on our credential consulting team. We have created a full service solution to help with all USCG credential applications.

"As an experienced captain on offshore supply vessels, and 25 years since training on tugs, this class was a great refresher to many things learned a long time ago. Was questioning if I should have taken the course, and at the end of the day , found it was well worth it!! Thanks Capt. Pat, Matt and Paul"
