First time on this site. I am a US Seafarer with over 10 years on boats with enough seatime for my master 1600. I currently hold an MCA British Chief Mate license, and have never taken a USCG course. I would like to blitz all of the courses and testing before the year. I am looking for a school that can accommodate that request. I see a fair number of professional cadetship/maritime academies are around, but I’m looking for the next level below a 4 year program. Does anyone have any recommendations on good schools for my 1600?
Also, as a side note, what are the repercussions of doing it after the new year? I hear a bunch of new amendments are coming in jan. 2017.
