[QUOTE=85TJ;46561]Thanks cappy208…I just took the STCW-95 BST in January and thought I was home free. I let my license expire in 1990 and have not done anything since then until 2009. I passed the exam in 2010 and got the 3a/e license.
Thanks for the clarification. I guess I’ll start looking for the advance FF class and get that certificate before I send the application in. One last question: do I send the original certificates or will copies do?
Lastly, I have read many of your responses to people’s questions about training and licensing and you do a great job for us all on this forum. Many thanks and keep it up. I will probably need your help in the future and will point others in this direction. 85TJ[/QUOTE]
Don’t send originals. Copies are OK, and as already noted, you can scan and e-mail. If you don’t have the advanced FF, you’ll get an “awaiting info” letter that gives you 90 days to resolve the deficiencies.
