1. This message solicits candidates and outlines the application
process to those enlisted members interested in the Enlisted Marine
Inspector Training Program (EMITP), a program designed to train
enlisted participants to become fully qualified Journeyman Marine
Inspectors. This program offers outstanding professional development
and career broadening opportunities for E-6s and E-7s who have the
desire and aptitude to train in the challenging and rewarding field
of Marine Inspections. EMITP selectees will remain enlisted for up
to three years in order to complete their training in Apprentice
Marine Inspector billets. However, selectees will have the
opportunity to apply for appointment to Chief Warrant Officer at
or near the 18-month mark of their three-year apprenticeship.
Program participants will also have traditional Chief Warrant
Officer pre-board eligibility requirements waived, including time
in grade and placement in the top 50 percent on the eligibility
list for advancement.
2. Prevention Marine Safety Warrant Officers are divided into two
specialties; Marine Safety Specialty Deck (MSSD) and Marine Safety
Specialty Engineer (MSSE). All Marine Safety Warrant Officers
perform regulatory oversight of complex federal laws, regulations,
and treaties as Marine Inspectors. These activities are performed
on domestic and foreign small passenger vessels, deep draft
freight/tank vessels, mobile offshore drilling units, offshore
supply vessels and oil and chemical/gas barges. In the
performance of these duties, they interface with a broad array
of private, public and international members at all levels of
the maritime industry.
3. There will be 35 opportunities for selection at the AY21
selection panel.
