    Default Letter from NMC about STCW

    STCW.pdf

    So I just received my MMC with my C/M added to it and included with it was the attached letter. It appears that this is a letter sent with all MMCs but was wondering if anyone knows any information on it. As always thanks for the info.

    Yeah I got my C/M renewal yesterday in the mail ( took 2 weeks) with the same letter.
    I think its the Manila Agreement passed last year: more STCW trAining coming down the line.
    If you're shipping already then it should be routine: I remember the anxiety back in 1994-1996 and 2000-2002... It's just the same thing.

    At least they are trying to get the word out, which is a hell of a lot more than they did in the 90s.

    Thanks for sharing the letter.

    Sukker, I did not receive one of those documents when I got my C/M upgrade. That being said, it was before the end of 2011 (Dec) so maybe I didn't get screwed...or maybe I did and just don't know it yet. It looks like they are alluding to the new management classes proposed in the NPRM.

    You didn't need to get one since you will have to renew before the deadline of 1 January 2017.

    Well, at least they had enough sense to write a letter to tell you that something will happen at a certain time, but not sure when, and when it does happen, we don't know exactly what "it" will be, but you better make sure you look for it, whatever it is, and very closely over the next 5 years because we are killing trees left and right to give every mariner the opportunity to be prepared by way of letter that says absolutely NOTHING. Ok, got it.

    Ugggh, saw a blurb about the contents of this letter on Quality Maritimr Training's Facebook page.
    When this rule does get published, wonder if it will be closest to the NPRM or the SNPRM.

    I am thinking that the requirement to take all those classes for OICNW will be back in place to comply with STCW.

    I got the same letter, it tells you absolutely nothing. The Coast Guard website tells you absolutely nothing. I think this is one of those cases that when whatever it is gets sprung on us, they'll point back to the letter and say "We warned you!"

    Actually, it is a big deal. There is no details because the final regulation hasnt been published, but they are saying we will all be subject to it regardless of the expiration date on your MMC.

    Pay attention to the new rule and make sure you get in compliance or you may not be able to work even if you have an otherwise valid MMC. There will be no grace period until your next renewal/upgrade.

    I realize that my MMC expires prior to said regulations, I just enjoy seeing Sukker sweat. If you know him you can enjoy this comment.
