View our Merchant Mariner pathway here.
Looking for a way to continue serving alongside the military? Perhaps you have an interest in international trade or would like to lend a hand during disaster relief efforts? If so, being a merchant mariner might be for you. From running our ports to vessel management and shipping around the world, our merchant mariners can do it all. They are the “jack-of-all trades” of America’s waterways. Our military servicemen and women possess the technical, logistical, and managerial expertise that it takes to be a merchant marine. Credit for prior military experience is given during the application process. To get started, check out our pathway at https://www.kyvallo.com/merchant-mariner.
