Yes. It's really that simple.

To renew your MMC follow the steps on the website, MM-SEAS, to make sure all of your paperwork is correct.

  • We then submit that to the USCG.
  • They review it and then approve you to take the official USCG take home open book test.
  • They email the test to you.
  • You look the answers up however you want (Google, books, memory) as long as no one helps you and complete the answer sheet.
  • You then email it back to the USCG, and they will  mail you your new USCG license.
