U.S. Merchant Mariners crew all types of vessels: containerships, tankers, bulkers, passengers vessels, tugs and much more. Some of these vessels are under contract to transport troops and military goods. Since the founding of the United States, merchant mariners have played a vital support role in the nation's conflicts.

A Word About The importance of Earning A Certificate - Certificate programs are the latest trend in adult higher education. To meet the rising demand, U.S. institutions of higher learning are expected to greatly increase the number of certificate programs currently offered. Not surprisingly, the value and prestige of earning a certificate is beginning to rival that of the associate degree, and in some cases even the baccalaureate degree. Certificates are an ideal way to gain competency quickly and less expensively. They are also considered a more reasonable stepping stone toward earning a degree if that is the ultimate goal.
