I'm going through the checklist here, and it wants a "Reference #." I would just leave this blank, because I don't know what it's talking about, but I don't want my application process to be stretched out even longer. Can anyone fill me in about what this is? Do I need it?
Also, once I have everything sent in- what's the average processing time before I get the credential? I got my TWIC in just under 2 weeks, so I have high hopes.
On my last renewal I was told that the goal was to have the credential in hand in less than 30 days. It only took a couple of weeks from when I turned in my application until I had my license in hand. I live in Alaska so mail takes longer. An entry-level mmd with no seatime to evaluate, clean physical, and no criminal record I imagine will go pretty fast, but if you plan on 30 days you will be less likely to be disappointed.
