What is the best military mos to become a small boat operator?

My husband is in the army currently and would like to either reenlist & change mos or switch branches to become a small vessel operator. we have looked at 88k for the army, what about navy or coast guard? Will you ever actually be the pilot of these vessels? should he attend a civilian captains course on his own dime instead?

    FOR SMALL BOATS COAST GUARD IS THE WAY TO GO. IF HE IS STATIONED AT A SMALL BOATS STAION, MOST RATINGS CAN GET COXSWAIN QUALIFIED (PILOTING THE BOAT), NOT JUST BOATSWAINS MATE. BUT BM WOULD BE YOUR BEST BET (CONSIDERING THATS THEIR MAIN JOB AT A SMALL BOATS STATION).

    It is not a nasty inspiration. However, being an MP may not always aid you come to be a police officer once you get out of the army any longer than having different jobs within the army. Being a veteran, without reference to what department you have been in or what task you probably did, is what can aid you get police officer jobs. Veterans get further aspects on civil carrier assessments. Some police departments that require candidates to have school will waive a few or all in their school requisites for veterans. Also, for extraordinary motives, a few persons readily like to rent certified veterans in the event that they get a risk to. I could bear in mind looking to become a member of the Coast Guard. You would attempt to come to be a Maritime Enforcement Specialist. You would additionally later attempt to come to be a boarding staff member. You would bear in mind looking to come to be an MA within the Navy, an MP within the Army or Marines, or a Security Forces Specialist within the Air Force. Talk to recruiters from all of the branches. Choose anything department you suppose could fit your needs so much. Keep in brain that you simply would no longer do so much conventional police paintings within the army. What tasks you participate in would rely plenty on wherein you're stationed. Many army bases or installations have federal civilian cops (in many instances known as DOD Police or 0083s) that do the various policing. Again, you do not have got to select a legislation enforcement or safeguard similar task. There are plenty of well jobs within the army. It is excellent that you simply plan on getting a school measure. Getting a measure is without doubt one of the first-class matters that you'll do. Many departments require or decide on candidates to have school. Having a measure would aid you get employed. Some departments pay their officials extra if they have got a measure. Having a measure would additionally aid you get promoted for the period of your profession. Getting legislation enforcement officer jobs is fitting increasingly aggressive. However, all else being same, a candidate that's a veteran with a school measure has an excessively well risk of having employed. Best of good fortune!
