Our Annual Survey of Towing Vessels course provides surveyors with the knowledge and skills required to perform TVIB TPO Subchapter M annual surveys of towing vessels. It has been designed to teach those who will be performing surveys as a part of an internal survey program, as well as those surveyors who wish to hold the credential to perform external surveys for TVIB.
Who Should Attend
Internal Surveyors: This course is designed for individuals seeking training on the requirements for Internal Surveyors as specified in section 137.315 Internal Survey Programs, and are looking to become proficient at conducting Subchapter M compliant internal surveys under the oversight of a Third Party Organization “TPO.”
Third Party Surveyors: This course is also for those surveyors who wish to become a TVIB Certified Subchapter M Surveyor for Annual Surveys. TVIB requires this credential for those individuals who plan to work through TVIB to offer annual surveys to TPO customers.
Shoreside Person(s) Responsible for Management of the Survey Program: This course is also ideal for those shoreside staff that may be tasked with managing the survey program. For those companies selecting the TSMS option, Subchapter M requires the owner or managing operator to specify in the TSMS the individual or individuals responsible for the management of the program (46 CFR 137.130(c)(4)).
