I’m looking for a place to get my BST certificate on the East Coast. I live in New Jersey so MITAGS is closer, but more expensive. Any opinions on which one is better in terms of quality of instruction? I’m waiting on the results of my drug screen, so hopefully I can go apply for my MMD next week and I have an appointment to apply for my TWIC on March 17th. Does anyone know if I need an MMD or TWIC before I can go to either school for my TWIC? Also, would completing an AB program too look better while applying for jobs on Tugs as an OS in NYC? Or should I wait until I have a job as an OS and have gathered up enough Sea Time to upgrade?
