I served 4 years in the US Coast Guard on board a 378 ft Cutter (the Jarvis out of Hawaii). I was an Operations Specialist and one of my primary duties was radar navigation. I have been getting mixed answers from different training centers about how my time will be counted. I am NAV rules certified, Damage Control certified, and have extensive Search and Rescue experience. I have been off the water for almost 3 years now because I am a full time student so I know that will hurt me some. Can anyone here give me some sort of direction as to what I can do? Thanks!!
