As evidenced by the numerous reference letters delivered during the initial interview, along my working history I have strive to do my job to my best, going always an extra mail when required. With my extensive experience in the maritime communications field, I strongly believe that I can contribute to maintain and probably to enhance the excellent reputation achieved during its existence since 1983.
Even, when the GMDSS course itself is not an electronic technical course, I always try to give students basic hints on how to solve potential problems which may arise while on board, such as how to make serial & parallel battery connections. What to do if an HF antenna is lost during an storm. How to keep preventive maintenance records, and so for. In other words, I am always willing to transfer my experience to my students because I believe that knowledge will be beneficial for the SAFETY OF LIFE AT SEA SOLAS, and that will give more job stability for to the student.
I have worked as GMDSS instructor for the STAR CENTER, in Dania Beach, Fl. Back in 2004 I accepted the GMDSS Instructor position permanently, but two months later I decided to leave the job because my company (Ocean Ship, Inc., required me to go back to work with them. After that, I continue working for the STAR CENTER in a part time basis. Whenever I was in vacations from my regular job on board, I used to teach the GMDSS course. The last GMDSS course I tough fro the STAR CENTER was on January 2013. I enjoyed teaching GMDSS because by doing that, I had have the opportunity to give prepare young maritime officers for the most important part of their duties which is the SAFETY OF LIFE AT SEA. I usually put their reach my vast sea time experience. The GMDSS course is very is very extensive, therefore, I usually tutored my students during weekends to reinforce those who may have some difficulties assimilating the material. With my experience on board, I am able to teach them practical facts which are not usually included in the text books. During the last course at the STAR CENTER I was tasked to review, correct, and update the text books the school was using for the course. To my satisfaction, the U.S. Coast Guard approved without objections the revised versions of the Instructors & Students text books. I received satisfactory evaluations from my supervisor and good reviews from the students. I had never have any student who failed graduation. The lowest score I got on my courses was 78 and the higher was 95.
As a member of American Maritime Officer, during the above period I was assigned to several Military Sea Lift Command (MSC) vessels under the management of different companies. My duties on board were to operate and maintain all the communications electronics on board and to maintain the navigation equipment such as radars, Gyro Compass and others. At that time, we were using Morse Code and Radio Telex for most of our communications, and I was very proficient of my duties. Please see attached reference letters issued by Master's under who's command I served. On Dec. 1995 I started working for Ocean Ships, Inc. and stayed with them until retirement on 2007. Then continued to work occasionally for them until 8/27/12.
