Second course for OICEW program in session at STAR Center


Participating in the second installment of the Officer in Charge of an Engineering Watch (OICEW) program established by American Maritime Officers and STAR Center are Steven Benavides Jr., Nasser Ahmed, Scott Collins, Steven Miller, Abdullah Alamri and Lawrence Bush Jr. AMO and STAR Center worked with the National Maritime Center for years to develop the OICEW program, which greatly reduces the number of weeks required for mariners with a national license to obtain the required STCW endorsement on their Merchant Mariner Credential to be able to sail deep sea.
