    Maritime Jobs

    Western and Northern Regions seem to have lots and lots of options. Am based here in South Australia. And when ever i search for any marine related job..... the above two pop up hope that helps
  4. Hey Guys.... Just shouting out to anyone based in South Australia. I am in Adelaide region... looking for some marine brothers or sisters PM me and will fwd details and we will communicate. more later....cheers baggi
  5. Not taking the going back option. Gonna bite the bullet and rough it out here. There are no marine jobs, whatsoever. There were two or three shipping offices here in the port area and when i went to meet them..... they were like, what are you doing here? And every recruiting company says, to apply from the website. I dont even know if they open those applications. I have applied to so many jobs that now i am getting rejection letters from unknown companies and the offices that i didnt even know that i had applied to. Anyways. Slowly things have started to look up. Takes time though........... My advise to the new comers............ Come with enough financial backup to last the time till you get something running. And get a driving licence as soon as possible. I am based here in South Australia, Adelaide Region. PM me if someone needs any assistance / service from a Master Mariner , Or even if you just want to talk. will fwd my number. Am looking into starting something. Something related to shipping. would be nice if we have our network of mariners who are here, so that we can help each other out, offer assistance, services, that sort of thing. Shouting out to our seniors here too. PM me your numbers. who knows one might need someone in another city to carry out a job. Cheers baggi
  6. This thread has been around for like for ever..... lovely thread. reminds me how hard it was getting here. anyone here, based in South Australia? just looking for some fellow mariners. regards baggi
  7. congrats Navigator looking fwd to the big day myself
  8. Thanks for the info, was wondering where i will be able to trace down the flag states for the PCCs. "Companies" on the other hand....are different. one can surely arrange character certificate from them.
  9. anyways, am hovering between the 10 and the 15 points with the sea time letters itself. will worry about the employment thingy after the orals
  10. how about sea time letters from the companies? it took me a lot of time and effort to track them down and get those. have been employed but have been jumping all over the companies last couple of years. didnt think that it would finally become a problem.
  11. jshamantak on the AMSA website there is this requirement which states how much sea time is required for which rank. i cant seem to find the link. read it a long time ago. but the skill set requirement states that in last 10 years, you get points for sailing 36, 60 and 96 months and you get the points for them respectively. hope that it helps baggi
  12. Shoot Question....... To contact you can PM anybody. regards
  13. Heya, Please PM me your Email address, have collected some study material from some helpful people here. will forward them them over to you. regards
  14. Peter Ash Congrats. As for you question, you will have to complete the CEC process (the orals and all) for working there as this qualifies for the Australian equivalence of your ticket. I believe that some employers ask for this.
  15. oceanman93..... have not seen the BC code being asked. basically its more of your role as Master. i feel that the notices are more important as they are more updated. find some people or friends who have sailed on bulkies and just get the precautions to load certain cargoes. the main export of Australia is coal and iron ore. on the import side there is more of cement coming.
  16. oceanman93, heya, even i am preparing for the Masters oral. 1) From all that i have seen and read the orals cover mostly your role as Master on an Australian vessel. 2) The ROR and the lights are same all over the world. 3) Also the buoys, they might just ask you to identify them or maneuver a model ship around them. keep in mind the Region "B". 4) and then the emergencies, also same. 5) Certifications, also same, keeping in mind the Australian laws and requirements. 6) am brushing up on the Australian notices (most of them are same as the MGNs and MSNs) there are two syllabuses around, one for full blown COC and one for COR. You will need to go through the Full COC syllabus but press more on COR one. He / They can ask from anywhere (depending upon their mood that day). regards baggi
  17. blossom79... got it. thanx. was wondering the same thing. cheers baggi
  18. Heya Orals are same everywhere. I have been to Australia a number of times. I found Sydney a bit expensive. As my family will be accompanying me, am looking at staying almost about a month. so was just looking for a cheaper place to stay and all. but then thats my thing. baggi
