Hi,

I would like some advise for the role of boarding officer. I am an female IT person by qualifications but as time goes by IT industry has become extensively competitive with many many certs to be taken every year. That alone is enough to cost me like thousands of dollars yearly on course alone.

Therefore, I am thinking of switching industry and am keen with the position as Boarding Officer.

However, it is difficult to find a such job posted online and i dont have the necessary experience.

Can anyone roughly explain the basic role of a boarding officer and is there any course in Singapore i can take up to learn the job?

Thank you in advance for your reply

Hi,

As far as I know, there is no course required except training on the job. Usually they would employ someone familiar with marine industry such as those sailing as junior officer or cadet on ship before.

The basic role of boarding officer is:
* prepare ship's document for port entry and departure
* coordinate with port and cargo operations on behalf of captain
* assist crew on their requirement such as seeing doctor, finding spares, etc.
* provide info to crew and other parties regarding the ship schedule

In short, be the local rep for the ship's crew and owner in the port of call.

Hope this helps.
