Hi gCaptain folks!
I’ve been using the search (and read the policy letter) but there is a list I would like to see that I can’t seem to find.
I’ve recently received my AB Special and I was dismayed to find that though all of a sudden I get responses to my job enquiries, almost all the responses include the question “do you have RFPNW?”.
I’m looking for a list of RFPNW “Prorgams” not “courses” mind you but “PROGRAMS” where I actually spend time at sea on a vessel over 200tons. I’m willing to pay to go to sea if I can get my RFPNW out of it… Also considering volunteering with mercy ships.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, seems like its nearly impossible to get work on a vessel over 200 tons without the endorsement, and getting RFPNW without the time is no go unless you enroll in a ‘program’ the only one i’ve found seems to leave it up to the student to find the placement on a boat and get the time as an ‘intern’. People are getting the endorsement somehow. I’d like to be one of them.
