USCG Marine Oiler Emphasis

This USCG Documented Marine Oiler A.A.S. Degree is for both men and women who want to get the training needed to begin a career in marine transportation (engine room). With successful completion of this program and a written USCG examination, students receive a USCG Merchant Marine Certificate (MMD MMC) with an Oiler endorsement, which qualifies them for employment in the engine rooms of large U.S. flagged vessels anywhere in the world. Oiler is the “qualified” entry level position in the engine room which has a career path that culminates in the chief engineer’s position. Program graduates can expect to find employment with the state ferry system, private ferries, cruise ships, seafood processors, tug boats, or any other large sea going vessels. This degree incorporates a six month (180 days) internship at sea as part of the requirements.

Incoming students will have to pass a USCG background check, drug screen, and physical agility exam during the first semester. They will also have to pass a complete physical exam prior to getting the Oiler Z-card. English and mathematics placement exams are also required in the first semester.

Program Assessment plans and student learning outcomes are posted on the Program Assessment website.
