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.

After spending days on the phone trying to deal with the USCG for my last renewal I am so happy I found Diamond Marine Services! They are worth every penny! They helped me renew my license easy peavy and advised me on several endorsements I didn`t even realize I qualified for. Thank You!!!

Very knowledgeable and always available when I had questions

Sam was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of renewing, upgrading, and adding an endorsement onto my license. When my renewal process hit a bump in the road with the USCG I called Sam and he immediately knew who to call and sort it out. He was also able to answer a lot of questions and clear up a lot of confusion I had regarding future upgrades to my license

Credential in Hand!

The DMS team made the process of getting a merchant marine credential smooth and straightforward. Being unfamiliar with the process, their expertise was invaluable. I highly recommend their service!

Spelling it out!
January 13,2023
I was having issues with an upgrade and endorsements. It became so frustrating dealing with the NMC that I almost just dropped my issue and accepted their inaccurate ruling. When I spoke to Sam the first time I was so impressed with not only his knowledge but his willingness to commit his time to helping me. He was up in the middle of the night speaking to me and scheduling meetings with me when I was on the other side of the world. Aside from fixing my issue (and adding some things to my license I didn`t realize I qualified for.) He also educated me on the whole process and gave me some incite on what I need to do going forward. I have already recommended Diamond Marine Services to several shipmates and will continue to do so. Thank You!!
