[QUOTE=Moguldan;178199]I recently completed MEECE (Management of Electronic and Electronic control equipment class) and a MRM (Maritime Resource management) class I hold a 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] assistant license. I’m supper confused if I need to do shipboard assessments, along with my course completion, to have these added to my MMC as second engineer unlimited?
Am I looking at the right NAVIC for this http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/nvic/pdf/2014/nvic-15-14.pdf That NAVIC seems to only address upgrading to management level licenses…[/QUOTE]
You’re probably confused because you are looking at the wrong NVIC. The one you looked at seems to only address management level endorsements because it’s about… management level endorsements. Also, STCW endorsements and national officer endorsements (licenses) are separate and different. Don’t confuse or imntermix the two, they have their own requirements.
Since you only told what national endorsement you have, I have to assume your STCW endorsement is for [I]Officer in Charge of an Engineering Watch[/I] (OICEW). The following is based on that assumption.
If you want to know what you need to maintain your current STCW endorsement, you need to look at the NVIC about that endorsement (OICEW).
You do not need Management of Electrical and Electronic Control Equipment to keep your current endorsement of OICEW valid after December 31, 2016. You do need a Engineroom Resource Management course and to meet the requirements for Leadership and Teamworking Skills to maintain your OICEW endorsement after December 31, 2016. Leadership and Teamworking Skills can either be shipboard assessment, or a course. The Leadership and Managerial Skills course required for Chief Engineer and Second Engineer Officer (not the national endorsemnt of 2nd Assistant Engineer) will be acceptable, and can be used again if you upgrade to Second Engineer Officer within five years. I am not familiar with “Maritime Resource Management” courses. Whether or not it can be accepted to meet the requirement for Engineroom Resopurce Management and/or Leadership and Teamworking Skills requirements will depend on the specific approval it was given by the Coast Guard (NMC).
[QUOTE=Moguldan;178199]…I am just going to have these STCW courses endorsed immediately on my seconds engineers license so my question is for that. I plan on turning in my course completion certificates along with another more cut and dry course completion cert I earned as one packet…[/QUOTE]
You can’t “endorse” courses on an MMC. You need the courses and assessments discussed above to keep your STCW endorsement as OICEW valid after 12/31/2016. If you meet all of the requirements I just discussed, you can remove a limitation on your STCW endorsement that says it is not valid after December 31,2016. If you have some of the requirements above, but not all, you cannot remove the limitation.
[QUOTE=Moguldan;178199]…Of note I have had my seconds license and sailed on it before March, 24 2014[/QUOTE]
When you began service is not relevant to maintaining your endorsement. It only applies to upgrading.
[QUOTE=Moguldan;178199]…No one seems to know including the school![/QUOTE]
If the school you went to doesn’t know what you need, you might consider a different school the next time you need a course. They seemed willing to take your money without knowing if what you are paying for will do what you need.
