In looking to add Oceans to my license and MAMA has 2 classes an “operational” level class at $2500 and a “management” level class at $1500. It looks like both classes will satify bumping my license (currently a 500 NC, but will be applying for a 1600 Ocean) from NC to oceans. What is the difference in the classes and why is one $1000 more than the other? I called the school and the person who answered couldnt tell me the difference, other than the “management” level class was for 3rd mate and up and the “operational” level class was for 500/1600 licensed people.
When I read the class discriptions it sounds like both will satisfy the requirements to go from NC to Oceans.
To add… CMTI in Gloucester only has 1 type of celestial class, adding to my confusion.
