That is what the USCG had provided for us and that is what the USCG will accept for your application. Every person who receives an original MMC must first take an oath, before an official authorized to give such an oath.

Who may administer an oath?

An oath may be administered any person legally permitted to administer oaths in the jurisdiction where the person taking the oath resides which really means a public notary. If you are at the USCG REC a Coast Guard-designated individual can sign instead of a Notary.

Where do I find a Notary?

A notary can usually be found by asking for one at one of the following locations: bank, law firm, real estate firm, library, parcel shipping store, photocopy shop, tax preparer, accountant office, college or university.
