The question came up recently about time limits for submitting training certificates (STCW mandated course) to the USCG NMC. Like many mariners, I would tend to keep these until my next renewal, unless there was a pressing reason to submit them prior (like a regulatory deadline). Another mariner has stated that they were told (at a rather remote REC) that there was a 1 year time limit for submitting these from the date of the certificate.
Any information out there? Granted, I am also searching on the NMC website as I write this…Mr. Cavo?
