I’m looking for a way I can do my assessments for my 1600 ton mate license by going to a class. I’m a ab and I’m about to start all my other classes. Can someone please tell me what class or classes I would have to take to complete all my assessments? If you might also know of a school in or near the Louisiana area that might have them. All information would be greatly appreciated.
I think Mitags/PMI just started a program in LA. I’ll see if I can something and PM you.
Print out the assessments and go thru all of them with your capt and have him sign them off… Itll save u thousands.
Good idea, I can’t believe I didn’t think of that first! Listen to NYboatman
Yeah I know the caption can do it but I was looking for a school that can do it if I can afford it. But thanks tho.

Just dont be this guy.
I’m new to this site but I could really use some help. Captain don’t seem to want to help so I need a school that can help me
It doesn’t need to be the captain. Anyone on your boat with a 1600 mate with OICNW or higher can sign off on your assessments.
Have you read through each assessment in detail, and if so, do you honestly feel you have mastered the requirements and ability to do each one completely and correctly?
Be completely honest with yourself here. Take the time to self- evaluate before you ask someone else to evaluate you. Maybe the captain " doesn’t seem to want to help" because he senses you are not ready yet. It’s not like he is sitting around with his thumb up his ass with absolutely nothing to better to do all day than wait for you to saunter up to the bridge to get your assessments pencil whipped.
You haven’t even taken the necessary classes yet. How about getting some of those out of the way first, then work on the assessments.
This^. More often than not there are two reasons a mate or master doesn’t want to help someone with assessments. One is when they come up at, and after being in the wheelhouse for 5 seconds ask to do an assessment while still completely oblivious to what is going on around the vessel. If you can’t figure out it isn’t a good time to ask, that’s the first sign that I don’t want to be sleeping while you are running the boat any time soon.
Second is the idea behind the assessments are that when you bring your book with you to get signed off you already know how to so the assessment with no prompting or outside assistance. The idea isn’t that someone holds your hand through it and you get signed off. You need to be able to do it on your own.
Honestly I see the above two issues far far more often than a captain just being a malevolent prick.
I’m going through this process as well. Little confusion on (6 months of training). So along with my completed book, does this mean I have to have a company letter saying I have trained for 180 8 hr days? Or letter from assessor etc? Or just turn in the completed book?
Am I reading the assessments correctly seems there are a couple that must be completed on a simulator.

Some can, but the school with the simulator has to be approved by the NMC to do the assessment(s).
