2/27/2019: National Maritime Center seeks members for 2019 Merchant Mariner Examination Working Group

The National Maritime Center (NMC) issued a bulletin this week announcing the 2019 meeting schedule of the Merchant Mariner Examination Working Group.

Section 315 of the 2015 Coast Guard Authorization Act requires the Coast Guard to commission a working group to review existing and new examination questions for accuracy and availability of examination references. Examination question review is an opportunity to help the NMC and your fellow mariners make long-term improvements to the knowledge examination system. We need your expertise. Let your voice be heard.

The Examinations page of the NMC website has been updated to provide an outline of the process for requesting membership in the working group, and includes the required forms and e-mail address for submittal. Once on the Examinations page, click “Working Group” to access this information. Requests may be submitted at any time.

The above schedule will be posted on the Examinations page. If you would like to participate in these or any future session, please follow the application instructions. Once we review your request, we will contact you to discuss further details and confirm the session(s) you wish to attend. Continue to check the website for updates.

Should you have any questions, please use the e-mail address provided on the Examinations page, or contact the NMC Customer Service Center by using the NMC online chat system, by e-mailing, or by calling 1-888-IASKNMC (427-5662).
