OUR SERVICES

TOAR

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. This service is available to any mariner that already holds a completed TOAR (does NOT have to be from our program). For more information, please visit out TOAR page or call us at 877-335-6341 to see if this better fits your needs.

Great Class, Great People

Had an absolutely wonderful experience doing the TOAR Class with Birk in Boston. He`s a true professional and awesome teacher -- he knows a ton about shiphandling and towing. I got a lot out of a class that was only a day long -- way more than I think I would have gotten out of a weeklong simulator course. It`s so much better to get out there with the environmentals on Boston Harbor and actually get a feel for a real boat when you`re maneuvering alongside a tow. Also wanted to thank Sam for working with me and my company last minute to make this class happen. He went out of his way to answer all my questions, and even got back to me via email on a couple nitpicky regulatory things he didn`t have answers for when we spoke initially. Can`t say enough good things about Diamond Marine. If you need to get your TOAR Card signed off, this is the place!

My husband and I both used Sam`s team to file our paperwork. His knowledge of the requirements and great organization made everything so easy. Do not waste time trying to do this yourself - it`s worth every penny to have Diamond Marine Services do it for you! Thank you, Jess and Russ
