Posts Tagged ‘Vessel Examiners’

The Coast Guard has requested Auxiliary Vessel Examiners to assist them in carrying out safety examinations on the boats BP is hiring to carry out missions caused by the oil spill.  If you can join us tomorrow morning and perhaps any day this week, please contact me by e-mail, jalboat@aol.com , for details.

We plan to meet tomorrow morning at 0730 in the lobby of the Freeport McMoran Building, 1615 Poydras St.   The building is directly across the street from the Superdome.  Your parking will be taken care of.

Besides helping the Coast Guard and your State, you will be allowed with this training and experience to challenge for the CFVE Certification.  You will be assigned as a trainee with other qualified examiners tomorrow until qualified.   I have been told qualification can be obtained this week.

Please join us tomorrow if your schedule allows.  The uniform will be ODU’s.  But, I also suggest cool civilian pants, shirt and hat be brought along just in case.

Thank you,

Jim Liverett, DCDR
