Maybe they don’t maintain the training and service records or the records are archived where they would be burdonsome to access…or it could be that the employer is a Dick!
[QUOTE=Tugboattim;47759]Im in the process of upgrading from 3m agt to 2m agt and renewing at the same time. I got a letter from the CG today asking for proof of “participation in 2 transfers or complete an approved course…” so i dont loose my tankerman DL and also proof of “satisfactory evidence of completing a practical demonstration of maneuvering and handling a towing vessel signed by an approved DE, OR submit proof of ongoing participation in training and drills during the validity of the license…” so i dont loose my Mate of towing endorsement.
I have e-mailed my prior employer and received this email in response “However, we only issue a standard service letter for former employees. It will not include the paragraph regarding drills and training nor the evidence of transfers. Unfortunately, we only provide that for current employees.”
How else can I prove transfers and training ? a better question is why cant they write this in a sea service letter ??[/QUOTE]
