Rfpnw

So I sent my application for AB limited to the NMC and it passed the first two steps but it got held up at the Professional Qualifications. Now I sent the 13page or so checklist for the RFPNW, with the captain signing off on all of the assessments. I got another form to fill out which Im not really sure how to fill out.

Those are the forms that document the “180 DAY’S WHILE IN TRAINING” FOR THE RFPNW.

so I just fill out when I was on watch during my hitches and check out the log books for my corresponding trips?

And get those pesky Officer’s Signature and Licence Numbers.

Some of the schools that have RFPNW training, include a watch standing record log for documenting the watches… if you dont have something along that line, the NMC wants it documented on this form…

Thank you for all of your help. I didn’t know about that sheet until the NMC sent it to me in an email.

The form is to prove that you performed watchstanding standing duties.
In some cases you must document 180 days and in others you need only document 60 days, it all depends on the course you attended

It looks like that form only documents your time performing navigational watchkeeping under supervision of the officer in charge of the watch. You also need to document completion of the assessments.

The cool thing about that form is that it allows you to show the dates over a long period of time …Stating that the training was accomplished between the stated dates instead of an individual watch log and having to sign each individual log entry…My captain wasn’t happy about that until I showed him this form…

I’m pretty sure there are 21 assessments …

I have already mailed in the document with the completion of the assessments, this one was the sheet I forgot

When you’re having the Officer sign off be absolutly sure the officer doing the signing is at the very minimum 2nd mate unlimited…not his/her title but actual License.

500ton master who is OICNW can sign it does not have to be second mate

1600 Masters would work right?

It has to be at least a 1600 ton master of oceans.

not trying to start an argument but call

www.mptusa.com and ask them, they will tell you 500 masters and it works

Well I should be fine. My captain who signed off holds a 1600 masters and the appropriate STCW and it was on a 275 ton vessel. The hardest part was getting on a tug in my company that was over 200ton

500 ton master Oceans/NC, 1600 ton master Oceans/NC, and 2nd mate unlimited Oceans/NC and above are all fine, USCG just doesn’t want green mates signing the assessments.

[U][I][B] USCG just doesn’t want green mates signing the assessments.

So what you are saying is that if “Kermit The Frog” got a mates license he could not sign the assessments. Is that not discrimination against green mates???

That’s exactly what I’m saying, if Kermit the Frog signed your assessments you are screwed. You need to go back to your boat and have either Gonzo or Miss Piggy sign them.
