I new to renew my license it expired almost 5 years ago. Can someone tell me everything I will need besides the Stcw, twic and lifeboatmen. A lot has changed and I’m a little confused. I once held a 1st A/E license.
An MMC can only be renewed for a year after it expires. After that, it’s treated as an original application. You will need to take the full original (closed book) exam for the endorsement (license) at an REC. That’s just for the national endorsement (license). For STCW it will depend on what, if any, STCW endorsements you held, and when they were first issued, and when they expired.
You’ll also need recency on vessels to qualify for renewal.
