Hi mate, have a look at "Control Risks", they do a CP course which is SIA approved and you can use enhanced learning credits or if still serving resettlement to pay towards it. They have new commercial contracts in southern Iraq and are looking at taking guys on in the near future and they favour guys who go through their system!!
It's a good way to get onto the circuit.

you alright mate, maritime is booming at the moment, loads of companys out there, drum offer 12 month contracts, others mainly dont so you have to chase the work, down side there is stack load of course you need to get down and not cheap. also you will need to get seamans card and discharge book, but the comany you work for will sponsor you for them.
info in you need let me know, i did 5 years in iraq (cp) then contract finshed to did maritime for a bit 2 months on ship, but then this came up in afghan which was to good to refuse, maritime is easy just stagging on really.
well give us a shout if there is any info you need.
