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.

Captain's License Renewal Exam and Assistance on Completing the Administrative Process
Sam was exceedingly helpful with the mechanics of the Final Exam (and very patient, I would add, as I struggled with the connectivity of my devices to the web-site).
Sam also assisted in helping me complete the USCG request for additional information as we completed the Renewal process…successfully I must add.
I strongly recommend using DMS to help any mariner through this government process. It became painless and actually easy to complete.
Master of Towing Endorsement
I recently took the TOAR course for my Master of Towing Endorsement. I had issues with the NMC and Diamond Marine stepped in and handled everything. I told them the problem I was having and they took over. It was so stress free, and easy. They definitely went above and beyond!
100 Stars service Thank You
Seamless 100T master/200T mate with original credential
Sam was phenomenal, both as a proctor and consultant. He made a crazy cross-link in technology and meeting software that streamlined the 2-camera online proctoring process and gave the perfect advice for the next steps. Deciphering USCG protocol is like being lost in a labyrinth without a clue; Sam gave me a compass and a map! 100% recommend Diamond Marine and US Captain’s Training!
Professional /Quality /Service
Renewals are not usually fun & easy, However after my experience with Diamond Marine Services that may change!!!
Sam caught an error on my physical form for my medical certificate. If it wasn’t for his professional knowledge & hard work I would of still been trying to deal with the Coast Guard & prob be missing work.
I highly recommend using there services!!!
