    Hey all,

    I'm coming out of the woods because I'm a little concerned and wanted to ask about something...

    An ME at my station said that "sometime soon" the Coast Guard is going to make the BTM PQS extinct and thus require everybody needing a BTM qual to go to the school in Charleston. Doesn't sound too bad but of course this would back things up, making BTM a waiting game.

    Does anybody have any further information? Such as when this change takes effect? Will recerts need to go to BTM school, or is it just for new first-time qualifications? I am about to start working on my BTM pracs but I'm very concerned it might be in vein.

    Thanks.

    Would you happen to know how soon this change will take effect?

    WB Ian. I know zero about this but why not just keep going with your pracs and if it changes and you have to go to Charleston, you'll be one step up on those that didn't start on their pracs and you can enjoy a nice trip to Charleston. Anyway, we're always saying never pass up an opportunity to go to a school. I can't imagine any part of training for it and then have to go to a school anyway as being a bad thing!

    Just my two cents, as I said I know nothing about this but I only see a win/win situation. If I'm looking at it the wrong way, please tell me... I'm serious, not picking on you. Just looking at it in an educational way. :)

    its like striking BM and having your name on the A school list, if you finish striking, awesome you've completed the task, if you get called to A school before you finish striking, well you should have no excuse to not be top of the class as you've seen the course material before.
