I have a couple of questions regarding the USCG celestial test and practical assessments.
First off…I am working my way through the CG exams for my 1600T upgrade. I have Module 206 Nav Problems Celestial as one of my exams. Although I bombed it in round one, I am confident that I can get up to speed and get past it in round 2. With that being said, it has come to my attention that you need the practical assessment, that you would get if you took a celestial class (which is supposed to be pretty easy considering) for STCW purposes, and to make the endorsement mean anything. How do you go about adding on just the assessment after you pass (wishful thinking…haha) module 206? None of the schools seem to have an answer. Can any 1600T Oceans captain (or greater) evaluate you for this assessment? Thanks in advance for any help regarding this!
