Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-line (COOL) continues to offer maritime credentialing opportunities that, coupled with shipboard qualifications, may better prepare Sailors for the safe navigation and operation of afloat vessels while in the Navy, as well as post-service maritime employment. Becoming credentialed permits individuals to sail in one of two merchant fleets, nationally credentialed and internationally endorsed. For information about U.S. Coast Guard credentialing requirements, read the Blueprint to Mariner document. For information about Navy COOL, visit the Navy COOL website or call (850) 452-6683.
