The USCG formal title for the evaluators in the job announcements is: “Legal Instrument Examiner”.
These are low level clerical jobs filled by people with NO legal training or experience, and NO maritime training or experience. The theory is that the evaluators do not need any prior legal or maritime training or experience because all they have to do is Follow the simple and clear instructions in the CFRs ,NAVICs, and USCG Marine Safety Manual.
Former Senator Robert Byrd used his influence to place large government facilities, including large USCG facilities in the hills of West Virginia in order to create jobs for the unemployed coalminer’s daughters in his state. The total lack of skills and expertise at the NMC is predictably reflected in their terrible results.
