I’m in the process of renewing my 3A/E License and need some help…
There is a lot of information on the NMC website concerning renewal if you have the required sea time. Unfortunately, those of us who don’t meet that requirement seem to get left out. I’m aware that the Comprehensive Renewal Exam is necessary, that it’s open book and that it has it’s own little section in the CFRs . That seems to be the extent of the information out there.
Are there separate exams for the license/MMC and the STCW certification?
Searching the forums, there’s a post stating that the Coast Guard would mail you the exam, you complete it in a timely fashion, and then mail it back to them. Is this correct information? On the Renewal Application, no place exists to request the exam.
I’d greatly appreciate hearing from anyone else who has gone through a similar process.
