First you have to go to maritime services division on St Vincent Street, get a medical form and a list of approved doctors. Complete the medical.
After doing the medical you go to marine training on dock road, Caribbean fisheries in chaguaramas or utt maritime in chaguaramas and do basic safety training/pre-sea course. It's a 1 week course.
After completing the course and obtaining the certificate go back to maritime services with medical and pre-sea certificate and apply for a discharge book.
Total cost should be around $3000.

If you want to get a discharge book you will still have to do the pre-sea training.

A Trinidad discharge book is good but a Panamanian is better/ I would recommend getting that using bosiet and Ukooa as endorsement
U get to work more places with it

That's true but the only problem is you wouldn't be able to get a Panama COC even if u have the money (which is a pretty penny) to do so because Panama stopped issuing endorsements and COC awhile now, best bet is Honduras

There's a pretty big difference between a COC and a discharge book.
A discharge book just enables you to work on ships as a regular sailor. Whereas a COC would enable you to work as an officer on-board a ship.
You can get a discharge book almost instantly compared to a COC where you would have to do various short courses, training, schooling and sea-going experience.
