If you have time on a vessel over 67 gross tons, it is time to upgrade to Mate 200 Ton. Why? It is an easy way to get your 200 Ton Master license.This course will get you a Mates Endorsement up to 200 Tons, based on your sea service and our 70 question exam.

 

NOTE: Based on sea service and minimum of 360 days operating with a officers credentials you can upgrade to a Masters license for the same route, based solely on sea service time. * Raise of Grade: IAW 46 CFR 11.903(c)(5), Applicants Raising Grade from Mate to Master on the same route may do so without further examination.

 

HOWEVER: it is very important you make the correct request on your license application. It needs to read:

"I am requesting a raise in grade from oupv NC to a less than 200 ton mate NC per the attached course certificate.

If you have a masters and upgrading to the mate, then wording is a little different. "I am requesting a change is scope to a mate less than 200 tons for the same route per the attached course certificate.

I am also requesting a raise in grade from mate 200 ton to a 200 ton masters based on my sea service per 46 cfr 11.903(c)(3)"

This way you are not requesting a 200 ton master on the 200 ton mate course certificate but per the sea service as a separate request.

*For Military personnel, one year as DWO will qualify to meet the requirements of operating under a license to get the Master upgrade. NOTE: It is ALWAYS subject to the evaluator's review.
