So I just got my Twic a couple of days ago and got a call back from the company I applied for; now I’m waiting on the background check to come and it seems like I’ll get an offer.
I originally became interested in this career because of deep sea transportation, and I’m mainly wondering if it’s possible to transfer the skills and time I’ll acquire here to something more along those lines? Has anyone here done this or known someone who has?
It also appears I’ll be working 12s: Do these normally count for the time and a half credit under 46 U.S.C. 8104 and 46 CFR 15.705? Or did I completely misunderstand this?
I’m most likely going to be doing tanker barges but I could also end up towing.
Appreciate any input y’all can give.
