1. This message solicits candidates and outlines the application  

process for 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 E6s and E7s 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 

four 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 four-year apprenticeship. Participants of EMITP will be 

the sole accession source for selection to the Prevention Marine Safety 

Warrant Officer Specialties.  

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. The eligible feeder ratings for MSSD are Marine Science  

Technicians (MST), Boatswain’s Mate (BM), and Aviation Survival  

Technicians (AST). The MSSE Specialty is fed by the Machinery  

Technician (MK), Damage Controlman (DC), and Electrician’s Mate (EM).
