The US Coast Guard announced today that it received approval of an updated version of the Merchant Mariner Credential forms.
- 719B Application
- 719K Medical Evaluation
- 719KE Evaluation of Fitness for Entry Level Rating
- 719S Small Vessel Sea Service
- 719P Periodic Drug Testing
The new version of these forms will be available on the Coast Guard NMC website (www.uscg.mil/nmc/) about the end of January 2013 and will be required after April 30, 2013. The new forms will be available in electronic format only.
I will be updating the application pages of my website (www.ColumbiaPacificMaritime.com) with the new forms as soon as they become available. As with all forms read everything on the entire form carefully and follow the instructions on the form exactly as written.
