    Default RFPEW question

    I just received my new stickers from the NMC, and where it shows all the STCW codes it doesn't show III/4. It does show RFPEW under the capacities, I do not have a QMED yet, maybe that's why? Anyone have any insight to this? Thanks everyone for your help.

    I don't really know what to tell ya. So you have RFPEW but no QMED?? Why did you get the one without the other??

    Under the capacities it says RFPEW but it doesn't show III/4 under the STCW code section. I got it because I sent in an application for a bunch of deck stuff and didn't want to wait for everything else I sent in for till I pass the QMED test.

    My unlimited what? I really have no need for RFPEW or a QMED, but since I sailed as a engineer I thought I would use the sea time.

    Unlimited QMED. If you're already an engineer, then why did you need an rfpew?

    I'm not an engineer. I'm a deck guy, I just don't see a point in letting sea time go to waste.

    That's the way I see it. I'll be sitting for my Qmed next. Never know when I may need it.
