Important Information

The US Coast Guard has announced once again the removal of all questions and illustrations from the public (USCG Exam Question Notice). I recommend writing your State Representatives regarding Public Law 114–120, 114th Congress. Please express how this will affect the ability of active Merchant Marine sailors to advance. Not everyone can afford to take 2 to 4 years off and pay tuition.

Questions and illustrations were made public in 1988 in response to a request and appeal by Marine Education Text-Books. On July 12, 2010 the US Coast Guard removed exam questions from the NMC web site, once again restricting public access. The National Mariners Association appealed that decision to Coast Guard headquarters. In August 2012, Commandant Adm. Robert Papp’s office granted the appeal.

Sample letter to congress.
