(Information from National Maritime Center)

The National Maritime Center has been making good progress toward reducing application turnaround times. Some applicants have reported approvals for renewal in less than 3 weeks! However, mariners should still submit an application for renewal at least 6 months in advance of the expiration date or longer if a medical waiver is needed or if there have been convictions for offenses since the current license was issued. DON'T SWEAT THE RADAR. As long as you renew your radar before it goes out you're alright. Radar expiration dates are not placed on licenses anymore, so there is no reason to attempt to match them up. Application and Physical exam forms may be downloaded from the NMC website available on our links page. Also, the changeover to the "passport" type of Merchant Marine Credential (MMC) is complete. In order to further reduce the NMC's workload, we recommend allowing the renewed MMC to be issued as soon as it is approved.
"Flashing Light" course renewed!
DMT Staff
Recent inquiries concerning our Visual Communications "Flashing Light" course have prompted us to have the course renewed. As of March 1, this course is once again available at Davis Marine Training. Since demand for the course is understandably low, arrangements for instructor availability must be made relatively far in advance of the course date. If you need this course, Email or call for information concerning the next date of availability.
5-Day Unlimited Radar
DMT Staff
The 5-Day Unlimited Radar Observer course is not being scheduled at this time. We expect to be able to resume offering the course as soon as an instructor becomes available. Renewals of Unlimited endorsements will continue to be held on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday every other week. Please contact us for specific dates.

  • Steersman, Western Rivers $750
