First off, thanks gCaptain and everyone here for your endless supply of quality info that can’t be found elsewhere!
I’m currently researching an upgrade from a Master 100/200 Mate N/C to Master 500. I am curious about the NMC’S checklist for Master 500 that requires [B]RFPNW Assessments [/B][B]ONLY[/B]. Does anyone understand what this means? I do have sea time (not logged as standing watch with OICNW though) that qualifies me for RFPNW but, I was never signed off on the assessments by a Shipboard Assessor.
The sea time requirements for Master 500 are obviously different than RFPNW. So, can I complete my assessments on a simulator and satisfy the [B]RPFPNW Assessments ONLY[/B] requirement on the 500 checklist.
Thanks in advance,
