Striking out with this one. Mama said possibly again in the future, the girl at MPT was nice on the phone but just lost, they aren’t running one, I see a school in Houston with something listed but haven’t heard back. Anyone taken the prep class somewhere else ? I’ve only gotten back into the industry a few months ago after 2.5yrs shoreside, not sure if theres other new schools doing them or ? Rather bite the 6wk bullet on this one, studying on my own isnt going to happen.
Since you said Oceans, I’m going to assume you’re working on a deck license. if so, you might want to check out STAR Center, MITAGS (both Baltimore and Seattle) and Crawfords .
If i can self study and pass, anyone can. I think there is no choice now, you have to test under the new rules with the new question bank. The new question bank has a lot less questions, and in my opinion the subject matter is easier. I know this by accident because when i upgraded last year i was using the new material for a couple months not realizing i was testing under the old rules. Seriously, self study! Its not much different than the dde unlimited test.
I hadn’t talked to anyone who’s taken it recently. I was wondering just what I was up against and if the prep was worth it.
It’s engine, but an outdated term. Prior to 2014, there were two Chief Engineer-Limited licenses, oceans and near coastal. They were combined in 2014.
Thank you Mr. Cavo
Most (including me) are surprised when they learn there are route and/or tonnage limits on some engine licenses.
