Over 60% of the energy we require daily is brought from great distances to America on oil tankers. To meet the demands of our daily lives, we require more than 20 million barrels of petroleum products a day. The largest tankships can carry up to 2 million barrels and costs only pennies per gallon to ship by tankers and thus, makes this most attractive transport mode.
Successful completion of this course should enable candidates to serve on oil tankers in a capacity other than master, chief engineer officer, chief mate or second engineer officer, and to perform specific duties and responsibilities related to those duties in connection with cargo equipment and cargo operations.
