    Default Master 500 Near Coastal to Oceans upgrade

    I recently got my Master 500 NC, and am wondering what exactly do I need to fulfill my switch to Oceans Endorsement? I think, from what I can gather, that I need to either test for Celestial (206XX module) or take an appropriate USCG approved class, and a Nav and Deck General test (207XX module) or USCG appropriate class.
    Also, a Rules of the Road test if I tested >12 months prior to my Oceans application. (although I have heard that the ROR test may have been discontinued as being required for the raise in grade I am seeking)
    Anyone have any latest news?

    I found the structure of a classroom helpful when I took the class last fall. We learned straight forward ways of sight reduction formulae with out using any sight reduction tables.

    We did not need to re-test the RofR.

    Thanks Water,

    Did you take the supplemental Nav Gen for Oceans class as well?

    It was a three week class at L E Fletcher in Houma. Gale Williamson was the instructor, and he did a great job.

    One of the units of the class would probably be the Oceans Nav you mentioned.
