Subchapter M requires all inspected towing vessels that have obtained a Certificate of Inspection (COI) to undergo a drydock and internal structural examination (DD/ISE) at least once every five years for freshwater service and twice every five years for salt water service.
This three-day course provides surveyors who plan to conduct Subchapter M drydock and internal structural examinations of inspected towing vessels with the tools, skills and knowledge to complete these examinations, and provides a path toward an industry-recognized credential. The class also requires pre-course online work that must be completed before class.
In addition to successfully completing this course, individuals seeking to become TVIB credentialed DD/ISE surveyors must also complete the TVIB application process and a practical demonstration of surveying skills.
Individuals who do not intend to conduct drydock and internal structural examinations may attend the course to obtain a better understanding of what is entailed in these compliance activities.
