Right now I am holding AB limited and QMED certifications. I’m looking to upgrade to 500 ton Mate, I have a few questions and if you would please leave your sarcasm for the next guy that would be great.
Does my Sea Time rollover from certification to certification? Like my 540 days I earned to get my AB does that rollover towards being a mate? Or do I need 1080 days on my AB ballot to qualify?
Secondly, are coastguard approved classes in person right now or via zoom? Weather I qualify or not as Mate at the moment I would like to get my tankerman endorsement. I live in Southern California, if anyone has any recommendations for schooling that would be much appreciated as well.
