Ive been taking some classes lately with the upgrade to 500 or 1600 in mind. I know the USCG has been talking about changing things up quite a bit but my instructor says everything has been put on hold. I also noticed though that the NMC website does not have a checklist up for 500/1600 NC master.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for the current requirements (sea time/tonnage and certs)? Also I was wondering where the CG was in the process of changing the systyem to see if I have time to squeeze in before it all kicks in. Everywhere I go Im getting conflicting information…
