QMED Any looking for fastest Seatime to get 3AE

I am a QMED Any working in Alaska. I need to acquire seatime to sit for the 3rds test. My current company only sails half the year. Ive looked at MSC. I was wondering how long it takes for them to open up positions and then hire and considerations that could hinder employment with them. I was also looking for any other companies that I could sail most of the year. Any information or advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you :slight_smile:

Mate here. I would look for Crowley or other companies doing ocean going tows since they have what I would suspect is unlimited horsepower (meaning high enough horsepower that sea time on them will not give you a limited license) and ocean going routes. That may open some doors besides just traditional ships.
