From what I understand. Once a AB or OS completes the Steersman Apprentice Program and has the 18 months of Sea time. He can upgrade to Mate after another six months Sea time. Correct or Incorrect?

Correct. The apprentice steersman license would be my first goal. Ideally I want a 200 Ton license with the towing endorsement.Originally Posted by jdcavo
