License Renewal Assistance

In addition to the routine paperwork, physical and drug screen, you now have the ability to show that you meet the "Professional Requirements" in one of several ways:

1. Show experience (360 days),

2. Complete an approved refresher training course,

or

3. Pass a comprehensive open book exercise.

Many people are unable to show the 360 days experience, and for them the other two options are important so they can retain their licenses.
Several schools are now approved to teach renewal refresher courses, and their certificates are accepted by the Coast Guard in lieu of experience or exams. Course prices are generally very reasonable and you also get the school's assistance with the paperwork.

Even though schooling is the most efficient way of meeting the requirements, some people may not be able to attend a course due to scheduling or location problems. For these people, National Captain's Institute offers a Renewal Assistance Program (RAP).

In order to use the RAP program, you will need to get the comprehensive renewal exercise from the Coast Guard. Answer as many of the questions as you can, using any reference materials you have available. If you are sure you passed the test with the required 90% grade, send it to the Coast Guard.

If you don't think you can pass the test, send your answer sheets to NCI. We will research the questions for you, and guarantee that you will be able to answer the questions with a passing grade. Call to find out if you will need to send the test booklets, and to find out the cost to research your specific exams.
