*applied to the NMC on 10/08 requesting that they add via “insert” all the “inherent” STCW endorsements/notations to my new style MMC that was issued in Aug09…NMC gave me a “courtesy call” today to say that the credential had been mailed on 10/19…that is very quick…I am still in a state of shock!
*this will give me the following STCW endorsements noted on the document: II/2 (Master), II/1 (OICNW),
II/4 (RFPNW), IV/2 (GMDSS), VI/1 (BST), VI/2 (Survival Craft), VI/3 (Advanced Firefighting), VI/4 (Medical Care Provider), VI/5 (Vessel Security Officer).
*it is my understanding the NMC has began listing “all” the qualifed STCW endorsements on MMC issued after 09/01/09.
**my reasoning is that this should eliminate some of the confusion in the employment process…particularly in applying for jobs in the international market.
