Assistant Engineer License Upgrade


I currently hold a 3rd A/E unlimited and 2nd A/E limited license. I am looking to upgrade my license to a 1 A/E limited. Do I need 1 year of sea service as a 2 A/E in order to upgrade? Which exams do I need to study for? Thank you in advance.


Go here and pull the appropriate check list. It’ll have everything you need.


See 46 CFR 11.512 and also 46 CFR11.503.


Do you mean limited by HP?
