Associate of Applied Science: Power Technology with an emphasis in 
USCG Documented Marine Oiler

Associate degree programs are areas of study designed to prepare students academically for admission to a bachelor degree program.

Typically an associate degree program is 60 credits (two years).

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 Document (MMD Z-card) with an OILER endorsement, which qualifies them for employment in the engine rooms of large U.S. tagged 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 120 day (1440 hour) 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.
