IBU Job Information

The Inlandboatmen's Union of the Pacific maintains regional hiring halls and dispatch services.  Most jobs posted by the union require a Merchant Mariners Document (MMD) and a TWIC (Transportation Worker's Identification Credential), as well as experience working aboard vessels, however some entry level positions are available.

 If you are between 17 and 24 years of age the union refers applicants to the Tongue Point Seamanship Program in Astoria Oregon.  The program is run by Job Corps, and students receive free housing and tuition.  The program is 17 to 24 months long, and at completion students are qualified with an Able Bodied Seaman document or Designated Duty Engineer document.
