252 AB Able Seaman - $ 799.00




Course Description

AB Able Seaman Course - Course #252
 
This USCG Approved course includes theory and written examinations towards the issuance of a qualified rating on your merchant mariners credential as Able Seaman. The level of AB that you receive from the USCG is dependent upon your sea service including the total number of days, size of vessels, and waters operated on. If you will also be applying for an STCW endorsement as A-II/4 Rating Forming Part of A Navigation Watch or A-II/5 (Able Seaman Deck), you will need to complete the required practical assessments either by taking a separate assessment session with MPT on the ship simulator or on an appropriately sized vessel. Please note that the USCG will need verification that your service has been under the direct supervision of a licensed OICNW or Master whilst you were being trained in navigational watch keeping functions.
 
This course also includes the USCG Approved practical demonstration of competency in Knot Tying and Splicing.
