If your sea time for your upgrade started prior to March 24, 2014, you will test under the previous examination system. All of our current exam preparation material is designed for this system. If your sea time started after March 24, 2014, you will test under the new system. Also, in 2019 all mariners will test under the new system regardless of the date their sea time started.
We are currently putting test material together for the new system and we should have some license preparation for the new system available in Jan 2015. If you have further questions on how these changes affect your personal situation, please contact the National Maritime Center - (888) 427 – 5662.
