Does a CG-791K renew my domestic and STCW medical certificates?
Yes. A CG-719K will update your medical certificate for domestic and STCW qualifications.
How is a medical certificate related to STCW?
A medical certificate from the Coast Guard certifies that the mariner has the physical capability to fulfill all the requirements of basic training as required by Section A-VI/1 of STCW.
How do I apply for a medical application/certificate?
Filling out and submitting the CG-719K form serves as an application for a medical certificate.
How much does a medical certificate cost?
There is no cost to submit a CG-719K form for a medical certificate. This only refers to the cost of submitting the form to the Coast Guard for processing a medical certificate. You may still have to pay for the medical appointment. Submitting this form does not change the cost of MMC renewal or original application fees.
