USCG NVIC 4-01 States:
[U]Designated examiner [/U]means a person who has been trained or instructed in techniques of training or assessment and is otherwise qualified to evaluate whether a candidate for a license, document,[U] or endorsement has achieved the level of competence required.
I see nothing in here that states a Designated Examiner must be a graduate of an “assessors” Course of Instruction. Can a Master holding the same or larger license as mine, with the towing endorsement assess me? The TOAR asks for the Assessors Name and License number only.
Me: 1600 Master, Oceans
