Does someone out there know the requirements for the 200-Ton Mate (Inland or Coastal) License? I’ve looked around and all I see is stuff about the Master or the Master/Mate. It all seems a bit muddled.
I’m testing for my 100-Ton Inland Master in March.
I have the documented 360 days required, of which:
[li]260 days are served (inland and near coastal) on various vessels around 100 tons and[/li][li]100 days are served (near coastal) on a 200-Ton vessel[/li][/ul]
Now I know I can’t go for the 200-Ton [B]Master [/B]yet, but I’m thinking I can obtain the 200-Ton [B]Mate[/B] along with my 100-Ton Master ticket.
I’m doing a study course for the 100-Ton Master ticket, after which I will take the test that they administer. Would I have to do an additional study course and test for the 200-Ton Master just to get the Mate ticket?
