Have you seen the new MMC verification tool on Homeport’s Merchant Marinier page? Just under the “…application status” link. Pretty cool! Very useful to the mariner to verify NMC has things correct. Very useful to the potential employer who wants to check you out. Plus, and this is nice, they detail all the STCW codes you’ve got, even the ones they refuse to print on your STCW anymore.
I’d post a link but their site always times out sessions so that would be useless.
