*****   Important.  Please read prior to purchase.  *****

A mariner seeking an endorsement based on sea time with at least one day of sea service prior to March 24, 2014, will be examined under the old regulations, using the old question database, unless they have specifically requested examination under the current regulations.  After March 23, 2019 all mariners will test under the new regulations regardless of the date of their sea time.

Our version 4.1 preparation material is designed for the older question database under the previous USCG regulations.  Our version 5.0 preparation material is designed for the new question database under the new USCG regulations. 

If you have further questions on how these changes affect your personal situation, please contact the National Maritime Center (888) 427 5662.
