Documents

A seafarer / candidate's profile contains uploaded copies of the professional, medical and travel documents that they need to hold for a position. This makes it easier for you, as a crew manager or manning agent, to quickly check paperwork is in order.

Introduction to the Documents page

To check a seafarer's documents log into your Martide account and click on Documents in the menu on the left of the page. You will go to the Documents page:
