BST REFRESHER VS. REVALIDATION

  • The BST Refresher course is required for mariners renewing their license that do not have 1 year of sea time in the last 5 years.
  • Mariners that do have the required sea time should take the BST Revalidation course.

 

INFORMATION REQUESTED: MMD / STCW ENDORSEMENT EXPIRATION DATE(S)

Due to the regulatory training required for BST Refresher and BST Revalidation courses, CMES is requesting every MEBA member submit to the school the expiration date for their Merchant Mariners’ Document. If your STCW Endorsement expiration is different, please include that information as well.

This information will allow us to better determine how many BST Refresher and/or BST Revalidation courses need to be added to the schedule by seeing how many members need to renew their credentials in a given year.

Please either send an email with your information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , OR use the MMD / STCW Endorsement Expiration Date form to submit this information to us online.

RADAR OBSERVER RECERTIFICATION AND VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS (FLASHING LIGHT) TESTING THROUGH CMES

CMES currently offers two options for taking the Radar or Visual Comms tests:

  • Tests may be taken at CMES during any scheduled deck course when we have a certified instructor available to proctor the exams. Students will need to schedule an appointment with the instructor for a mutually agreeable day and time for the testing.
  • Tests may also be taken through the CMES online training. Study and practice materials are available online but the student will need to take the exam at a Prometric Testing Center. Additional information on this option may be found on the school’s website - http://www.mebaschool.org/online-courses.
