My license expired last June and this March I sent in my application to renew. I sent my application to Charlotte and after 2 days of not hearing anything I emailed them to confirm that they had received it which they stated that they had.
30 days later I contacted the NMC about the status and they said that Charlotte claimed they never received it. I emailed them the conformation letter and to their credit they had me send my application directly to them and said they would put it in the que where it would had been. I am thinking this is great.
Then they send my application to the REC Juneau AK. WTF. I next get a letter from Juneau saying because I put SR on my application that I had to send proof that I went to court to have my name changed.
So I sent them this.
The Jr. and Sr . does not go on identification such as driver’s license, etc. It is used as a clarifying tool, to indicate to the recipients of signed documents that there are two of you, and that background information should be cross-checked against a secondary identified such as SSN.
Because I thought this still might be too much for them to comprehend I resent my package with the SR removed. After a week of waiting for the letter that the application Status link said was coming, it never did, my application was forwarded to the NMC for evaluation.
Now the NMC says I have to take my Master 200T and ROR open book test.
I am within the year so why do I have to test.
For my International they want, Advanced Firefighting Certificate, Basic Training Certificate, Lifeboatman/PSC, and Radar Certificate. I understand my Sea Service letter doesn’t have the Radar statement but why the other certificates.
