I need to renew by August. I currently hold 200ton NC with STCW. Not all the STCW but enough for what I was doing, which was passenger ships to Canada and parts of Caribbean. Now I am currently working, with only a limited time for study. And needless to say I want to act before any rules change.
So the question is should I be studying for Oceans or upgrade. I believe that I just need Celestial for Oceans, based on the most recent checklist I could find. Of course I need more for upgrade. I don’t have time to study for both, so which would serve me best. I have study material for either option
My assumption is that after the rules change I will be “stuck” with whatever I have at the time. All comments welcome to help me clarify my mind.
