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.

OUPV Near Coastal

Worth every penny. I’ve spent decades around the industry but this was my first time going for my MMC.. I was initially hesitant about the cost, but Diamond Marine did not disappoint. Sam was a complete professional, providing excellent customer service throughout the entire process. His proactive approach to helping me get my paperwork and requirements complete was very helpful. He quickly returned my calls and was always available to answer any questions I had. I always felt as a customer that I was a top priority, The strong working relationship he has with the Coast Guard paid off in that I was able to get my credential much quicker than I could’ve on my own. Thanks again Diamond Marine and thanks Sam for your diligent professionalism and service!

Incredibly Helpful
May 7,2022
Sam and Diamond Marine Services made a very daunting process very organized and seamless. From start to finish, Sam guided me through every part of the application process. The communication was excellent, as was any advice he gave regarding all the pieces/parts that make up the application. I can’t thank Diamond Marine Services enough. They truly provide a worthwhile service to anyone considering applying for their Captains License..

Without Sam, I would still be dealing with the Coast Gaurd. He guided me through the whole process and made sure my application was done correctly before he sent it out. He kept me in the loop the whole way with personal phone calls and updates. Thanks Sam, I will recommend everyone considering applying for their captains credentials
