I just received a call from NMC. During the application process, I learned the CG was removing my Tankerman endorsement for lack of use, like so many other people. Apparently, now it will be placed on my MMC in continuity status, and can be reactivated by taking an open book exam. Interesting.
On a side note, I guess the 30 days from application to issuance is out the window. I passed my C/M exam on Nov 23rd. Last thursday I called, and my evaluator received my file on Friday. I watched the examiner from the REC send the email. Evaluator claims he was “having trouble with his inbox”. This is the same guy that admitted he had not checked his mailbox for “more than 2 weeks” after I had overnighted something to him during the evaluation process. So today I was told I should receive my MMC in 1-2 more weeks. So in my case, 3-4 weeks just to print the darn thing. And I lose a job as of Wednesday. So it goes…thinking happy thoughts.
