After looking at MPT Class Schedule SAR M Pre requisites it says SAR Operational is “recommended” It looks to be a money grab they just want you to make more course ware. But i don’t know much about it. I only ask because SAR M lines up perfect for me but SAR operational does not. What Does the hive recommend I do?
What endorsement are you going to apply for? There are course requirements for the “operational” level (OICNW) and at the “management” level (Chief Mate/Master). They aren’t the same course. Make sure you take the one that meets the requirement for the endorsement you are going to apply for.
