A subcommittee of the Coast Guard's Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC) will meet to discuss the training of merchant marine personnel on April 30 and May 1, 2003, in Seattle, WA., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The meetings are open to the public. The MERPAC subcommittee will specifically meet to discuss recommendations on a training program for officers in charge of an engineering watch coming up through the hawsepipe. The subcommittee will develop recommendations and a proposed training program to be used by a mariner entering the maritime industry after August 1, 1998. The recommendations and proposed training program will be forwarded to the full MERPAC for consideration and possible adoption at the next regular meeting. MERPAC advises the Secretary of Homeland Security on matters relating to the training, qualifications, licensing, certification, and fitness of seamen serving in the U.S. merchant marine.
