Applications being accepted for next TECH Program class

Applications for the next class of The Engineering Candidate Hawsepipe (TECH) Program are being accepted through June 30, 2017. The class is scheduled to commence October 2, 2017.

The TECH Program, which is approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, satisfies all USCG and STCW 2010 training and sea time requirements for apprentice engineers completing the program to sit for the USCG third assistant engineer unlimited horsepower (motor) examinations.

Members of American Maritime Officers are encouraged to recommend applicants for the TECH Program.

A comprehensive hands-on two-year program, TECH targets high-performing high school graduates with an interest in pursuing careers as marine engineers, and mentors them during comprehensive training rotations ashore at STAR Center and onboard ships operated under contract with American Maritime Officers. Apprentice engineers who successfully complete the program and attain their licenses sail as members of AMO.

Information on the program and how to apply is available online.
