Good day folks,
I saw a similar post on this however the information was from 2013 so I’m hoping you can help with fresh information.
I am soon to be a U.S citizen through marrying an American woman. I currently hold an MCA OOW unlimited license and am finding it extremely difficult to find a U.S company that will accept it. Even for positions far lower than my current.
Therefore I am trying to find out information if it is at all possible to gain the USCG equivalent without having to essentially become a cadet again and take the exams and orals. I understand that my sea time would could but this is not an option for me.
Failure to gain the USCG equivalent, could anyone offer other alternatives such as gaining the USCG Chief Mates 3000?
All your help is greatly appreciated! I’m stuck!
