 Veterans Affairs

The staff at AVTEC Maritime would like to give back to those that have sacrificed so much for our country and help them on the road to a career in the lucrative maritime industry. Some of our staff have served in the Armed Forces and know the challenges and opportunities that veterans have in finding professional training and employment. The specialized training that many veterans receive in the Military parallels what a merchant mariner requires in order to achieve some of the highest carrier levels in the maritime industry.

The economic downturn has had detrimental affect on many industries in the US and around the world. The difficult economy has not stagnated maritime growth. In fact the maritime industry is booming all over the world including Alaska. Maritime employers are actively searching for qualified, dependable people to fill their crews from entry level positions all the way up to captain. Many of these employers are finding veterans to be perfectly suited for this type of career.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in the maritime industry and need training to accomplish this, please contact.
