    I have a friend who is up for renewal of 1600 ton Masters license and MMC. IM trying to help a friend who is up for renewing his Masters license and MMC.
    He is worried that his renewal will be delayed due to having 2 dui's about 6 years apart. The first one was in 2006 and the second one was in Oct 2012.
    He will report all on his renewal application with all needed documents.
    I have read the regulations over and over. There is a table that the reviewer goes by for convictions.
    But were not clear on something. In the regulations it states that other factors may be considered in the approval process such as

    Evidence of an approved therapy program.
    Records of attending aa meetings.
    Probation complicance.
    Work history.

    This person enrolled into therapy on his own before his court date.
    He started aa meetings and has attended as much as possible on his off time.
    He has a consistant work record offshore with several companies since the 1980's and has
    worked offshore as Os,AB,Mate and Captain for over 35 years with no accidents, no pollution incidents,
    and has never been involved with getting someone injured.
    He has always been fully devoted to safety and the environment when onboard vessels.

    I know that drivers license status is an issue in all this.
    He will not be able to get his re-instated until Feb 2014.

    What are his chances on being able to continue working on his license?
    There arent any other options open for him to make a living.

    If you are knowledgable on this please respond!

    I am no expert, and most of us are here on the forum for discussion purposes, not so much license regulations, but just try to submit all of the paper work. The fact that the last one was in October is probably going to be the issue.

    When you submit the paperwork its either going to be a yes or a no. If its a no then you are going to know what he needs to be elegible.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    As a licensed mariner myself and having dealt with the NMC on many issues; the only thing you can do is be honest. It all comes down to the evaluator.

    Frankly, having just one DUI/DWI will in most cases when applying for an "initial" license will certainly be rejected. Having two offenses while already holding the license and applying for renewal? I would be hard pressed to think he will get another license. If he had contacted the NMC when he got his offense they would have surly suspended/revoke his license that day.

    Mariner credentialing is a complicated process these days and is very regulated. Licensed mariners are held to a very high standard. Regardless of your friends "experience", he will certainly be evaluated on the basis that he's shown a severe lack of judgement on these two occasions. Licensed mariners are not in short supply, no freebies are given anymore.

    Like I said, be honest. If he lies, and they find out, he will be in a whole new world of trouble.

    Thanks for the reply. My friend has no intention of being dishonest.
    The question about drivers license status is another concern. He understands that he
    used poor judment and deeply regrets it.
    Thanks.

    Greg
