Seafarers Worldwide Career Training

Course Duration: 5 Days (40 Hours)

The Able Seaman (AB) endorsement is the first step to launching your maritime career. In this course, you will learn how to safely and effectively participate as part of the deck department of a vessel. This means being aware of the obligations under Coast Guard regulations concerning safety and protection of the marine environment, and being able to take the practical measures necessary to meet those obligations. Whether you need the standard Lifeboat certification, a PSC refresher course, or Proficiency in Survival Craft Limited to complete your AB training requirements, you can avoid any extra hassle by taking the follow-up course with our partner Seafarers Worldwide. We work to accommodate your schedule and arrange for uninterrupted class days for swift advancement to the next level.

With an AB certificate, and the requisite sea time, you will be able to apply for the following endorsements without any further testing:

AB Unlimited requires 1080 days experience on ocean waters and can serve as AB on any vessel.

AB Limited requires 540 days experience on vessels greater than 100 GRT operating on ocean waters and can serve as any AB on vessels of less than
1600 tons and constitute 50% of the AB on vessels greater than 1600 tons.

AB Special requires 360 days experience and can serve as AB on any vessel less than 500 tons and constitute 50% of the AB on vessels greater than
500 tons.

AB OSV requires 180 days experience and can serve as AB on any oil industry vessels less than 500 tons.

This course satisfies the training requirements of STCW Code Section A-II/5, Table A-II/5, and the competency requirements of 46 CFR 12.603(a)(4); AND the written examination requirement of 46 CFR 12.405(a) for the “Deck General and Navigational General,” “Deck Safety and Rules of the Road;” AND the “Practical Marlinspike Seamanship Demonstration” requirement of 46 CFR 12.405(c). This certification is recognized by the United States Coast Guard, Transport Canada, and other international maritime regulatory authorities.
