In March, the U.S. Committee on the Maritime Transportation System hosted a webinar on the Medical Certification process that is part of the merchant mariner credential. National Maritime Center’s commanding officer Capt. Kirsten Martin and Chief of the Medical Evaluations division Dr. Laura Torres-Reyes had the opportunity to address the upcoming changes in the merchant mariner medical certification and take questions from webinar participants. CMTS recently posted the audio recording of the webinar on its website. In this post, Maritime Commons is sharing the link for our readers who are interested in the subject or who were unable to participate.
The webinars are scheduled for March 12 and March 14, and will cover upcoming changes in the merchant mariner medical certification, and Federal, State, and local resources that can assist employers in finding, hiring, and training veterans in the maritime transportation industry.
