National Captain's Institute, Inc., a not-for-profit educational institution is offering an automatic renewal notification program for Captain's licenses and Merchant Mariner's Documents.

Coast Guard Licenses and Documents are good for a period of five years, and there is NO notification sent prior to expiration. The license holder must remember to apply for renewal or the license or document may expire.

Licenses and documents may be renewed up to 360 days prior to expiration, but after expiration they cannot be used. In order to avoid having to go through the whole paperwork and testing procedure for a new license or document, the prudent mariner renews prior to expiration.

This program will notify you approximately six months in advance of expiration, and will advise you of the renewal procedures currently in use by the Coast Guard along with helpful hints on renewing with as little effort as possible.

The fee for registration is only $5.00.

If you hold both a license and a document, you may renew the document early so its expiration date will coincide with that of the license for ease of future renewals. Ask your Regional Exam Center for procedures and forms. Renewing both together also saves money as the user fees for evaluation are combined.

If interested, you are urged to complete the enclosed registration form promptly and return it to the address above.

You've worked hard for your ticket. Don't lose it!
