About to Submit my sea time to the Coast guard for my Upgrade. Just curious what I will need to turn to expedite the process.
Just a quick background. I graduated from Cal Maritime '08. Have since been working on ship assist tractor tugs in the inland waters of SF bay. Will be putting in for my 500T Master/Master of Tow.
Current license is: 3rd Unlimited, Oceans, 100T Master, Mate of Towing Endorsement, Current Radar observer unlmtd., STCW etc etc all that is up to date.
Here is my list so far, please take a look and tell me if I am missing anything, or if anything listed is not required:
- Proof of Seatime
- Completed Application
- Application fee
- Coast Guard approved physical? Will I need one for the upgrade?
Anthing else I am missing?
