We have multiple Subchapter M training opportunities quickly approaching. We will host the 3 day TSMS Auditor Certification course and the 4-day Annual Survey of Towing Vessels course together at Inland Marine Service in Hebron, KY, and the 2-day Coast Guard Recognized Marine Internal Lead Auditor course in Houston, TX.
TVIB has taken a new approach to teaching students how to conduct audits and surveys to confirm compliance with Subchapter M. This innovative week long course allows auditors and surveyors to attend a few days, or the entire week, depending on their needs for Subchapter M instruction. Individuals who are interested in obtaining both course certificates may register for both courses.
