    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?

    Did it a couple years ago. I just applied for the endorsement with NMC then took the class and faxed them my certificate. That easy!

    If you need to take celestial I took it & reccomend CMTI. They also do the deck supplement you need as well.

    Raise in Grade NC to Oceans.docxThanks all,

    I found one at Maritime Institute in San Diego, covers both Celestial and Nav Gen supplement. It looks as if that even if I test at a REC, I would still need to take an appropriate Celestial class.
