I’m new to the maritime industry…
I’m looking at online programs that could qualify me for a 3rd. Maine Maritime Academy seems to offer a 2 year MS that also qualifies one for a 200GT Mate Near Coastal… what does this mean? My ultimate objectives if I go this route are to be a Mate capable of both Great Lakes and the ocean, ideally larger than 200GT – if I do the Maine program, where does that leave me? How hard (or, what is necessary) is it to ‘upgrade’ to something else?
