I’m a 3rd Mate, academy graduate 2010 with an unlimited tonnage/any oceans USCG license set to expire in September. I spent most of the time since then sailing aboard unlimited tonnage vessels.
I have already handled the physical and the application for license renewal, but I’m stumped about which training I’m required to take to renew my license.
I’m certain that I need to take Radar Observer and probably ECDIS.
I know that there are new STCW rules in effect or about to take effect that may require other courses as well (BST and Shipboard Medical f.ex.).
Does anyone have useful info. concerning which classes/training that the Coast Guard will require to renew my license? I’m going to take a look on the Coast Guard Web site as well.
Appreciate any helpful info. that anyone might have.
