[QUOTE=kemosabi;135689]Firstly, thank you Mr. Cavo, for responding. But what about the 58 assessments? some of them are impossible to get signed off unless you are on a containership or if you take the courses. are the assessments not required unless your sea time started after march 24th either? unless that is the case, it seems as though the courses arent required…but they are still required.[/QUOTE]
The assessments are required under both the old and new rules.
[QUOTE=kemosabi;135395]I know that we dont have to take courses in order to upgrade to CM/M unlimited any longer, but does anyone have insight on the assessments. Specifically, a few of the shiphandling assessments require you to be on a container ship of greater than 10,000 gt with a single screw right hand turning propeller. a few of the stability assessments are similar. Is this actually the case? or can I get these assessments signed of on any unlimited vessel?
and yes, I have been searching through the forums before i posed the question.
thanks in advance[/QUOTE]
I haven’t gone and re-checked all of them, but I am pretty sure that none of the shiphandling assessments call for them to be done on a ship of at least 10,000 gross tons and I am positive that none of the ship handling assessments have to be done on a container ship. I am almost positive the only requirement on the ship handling assessments is that they be done on a simulator or a vessel of 1,600 GRT/3,000 GT.
