Hello everyone,<br><br>Has any one heard of a QMED without RFPEW on the STCW if not well now you have because that is me. I am prior navy and was an engineering rate and had sufficient seatime so I was allowed to test out for QMED. So I have my QMED and no STCW other than my BSt’s. Companies have a hard time understanding that because they need me to have the STCW 95. Now I am currently disputing this with the coast guard as far as giving me RFPEW based on my qualification assesments from the navy, but I want to work now and start to get a hang for commercial sailing. Does anyone know where I can start?
