Chief Cavo…I am preparing to go back to work offshore and am interested in knowing if my STCW needs to be reissued?
“para-prased” my current STCW reads:
qualified in accordance w/ II/2, IV/2, A-WAV
required to wear corrective lenses and have spare pair
master-limited to 1600grt/3000itc
valid for GMDSS
**license reads: master 1600/3000 oceans, mot oceans/western rivers, radar/unltd
**mmd reads: wiper, sd(fh), corrective lenses, any unlic dk rating incd ab
What about: MOT, AB/unltd, RFPNW, VSO, MCP…should they be noted on my STCW…anything else?
What is the current process for updating the STCW…now issued by NMC or REC…time line?
