This is on their agenda for the 01Jul meeting:
(3) Consideration and possible action
on a subcommittee’s Final Report
concerning Dynamic Positioning (DP)
I don't have details but I hear some sort of DP endorsement on your USCG license is on the table (similar to BCO). See http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/pdf/2010-13117.pdf
Comments are due 20Jun.
I think we all knew this was coming.
Unfortunately it being the coast guard I doubt they will just accept the class room time and cert. you get from the Nautical Institute and instead want you to go through their own set of hoops.
