I have one more renewal and then I’m outta this damn business. 46 CFR says I can renew anytime.
My current MMC expires in 2019 but what I’d like to do is get all my gap closing courses and then renew late in 2016, trying to time things so that my next and final MMC is issued December 31, 2016 (or thereabouts), that way I can avoid the requirements (firefighting, BST, etc.) that come after Jan 1, 2017.
Anyone from NMC…will I be able to request an issue date of 12/31/2016? In general, does it sound like my plan will work? I know it’s still 16 months away, but one thing I’ve learned in this business is be ready well ahead of time. Thanks.
