From Captain Bradley Clare, Commanding Officer, National Maritime Center (NMC)
Section 315 of the 2015 Coast Guard Authorization Act requires the United States Coast Guard to commission a working group to review existing and new examination questions for accuracy and availability of examination references. Participation in examination question review working groups is an opportunity to help the National Maritime Center (NMC) and your fellow mariners make long-term improvements to the knowledge examination system. We need your expertise. Let your voice be heard.
The process for requesting participation in a working group can be found on the Examinations page of the NMC website. 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.
