Re: AB Limited to AB Unlimited UPGRADE PROCESS ONLINE?
You can apply online. Go to the NMC website and you will find out how to pay online, download the application, etc. Get it all together and you can email to the REC of your choice, they will confirm you have supplied all the pieces of the puzzle and will the forward it to the NMC for consideration. It ain't hard but you might have to make a tiny bit of an effort. Good luck.
The time for taking all measures for a ship's safety is while still able to do so. Nothing is more dangerous than for a seaman to be grudging in taking precautions lest they turn out to have been unnecessary. Safety at sea for a thousand years has depended on exactly the opposite philosophy.
