[QUOTE=z-drive;125010][I]The Coast Guard will not approve any course taught outside the territory of the United States, either by schools or institutions incorporated in a foreign country or by U.S. owned/operated schools or institutions. However, training courses offered in schools whose states are on the “white list” maintained by the IMO, will be accepted to satisfy STCW training requirements provided training does not lead to certification or licensing. A U.S. owned or operated training institution desiring to offer training outside the United States, must obtain the approval of that country’s administration. ][/I]:[/QUOTE]
I’ll be in a similar situation once my visa gets approved to marry my fiance and move to the US. I’ll have my transport Canada 150gt Master certificate along with the necessary STCW BST, SC and AFF.
I’ve known all I can get with a green card is AB, but this writing about STCW is news to me, and a little confusing. Canada is white list, so would I be able to credit my BST and SC towards my AB?
For those who don’t know, once on a greencard one must wait 3 years before getting full citizenship and therefore an actual licensed rating.
