I am very keen to get into the industry, I am ex Navy, and a qualified chef. OMS has told me that i cannot apply for any of there job's unless I am a member of the Maritime union, and the union has told me that i cannot join, until i have a job in the industry??? Which ticket will be more benificial TBOSIET or STCW95, am I better off trying to gain work on a vessesl or tender before the rigs. Am I wasting time enquiring without these tickets? Thanks. Josh.
