So, I just received my approval letter to test from the CG. I had applied for 500 ton mate/ 3000 ITC which was approved and moved along for the examination. Now here is the weird part…
On my approval letter it gives me the modules that I am required to test on which are as follows:
181 Deck Gen 70%
183 Deck Safety 70%
185 Nav Problems (terrestrial) 90%
180 Nav Gen 70%
184 Plotting 87%
Notice there is no rules of the road ( Nav rules) which should be a 90% as well…
I called the Coast Guard and asked them what the deal was and I was told that I did not have to take the rules of the road exam!?!?!?!
I have never tested at the coast guard before and this seems wrong…
Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone else ever had a test omitted like this?
