The National Maritime Center (NMC) has posted a new format of the Deck & Engine Examination Guide on its website. The examination guide has been rewritten to contain information pertinent to USCG administered credential examinations for deck and engine endorsements and associated regulations.
As the NMC moves forward, the new format allows the agency to quickly revise the guide in response to regulation and policy changes. Thus, the applicant can be assured of having access to the most up-to-date information concerning exams and the examination process.
Effective July 20, 2011, the document referred to as Guide for Mariners - Merchant Marine Examinations will replace the previous Deck and Engine Examination Guide. This document will contain examination information in the following format:
Chapter One: Introduction
Chapter Two: General Information
Chapter Three: Engine Guidance
Chapter Four: Deck Guidance
Chapter Five: CFR Quick Guide
