I wanted to reach out to any of you guys out there with a Chief Engineer license who may be on a 6th or 7th or 8th issue. I am trying to gain an understanding of how the process worked then compared to now. Is the exam more difficult now? Was there an exam then? Was there any grandfathering of experience, etc? I am assuming that the process has changed quite a bit since the 70s, 80s, or 90s. If anyone has an idea of when the process changed, etc. that would be great as well. I am just trying to gain more of a historical reference of then vs. now. Thanks for any information that you all can provide. Have a good day.
