Once you take your medical exam we recommend submitting it to the USCG immediately.
If this is your first submission to the USCG for licensing they will issue you your Merchant Mariner Reference number which you will use for the rest of your professional maritime career.
If you already have an MMC reference number, make sure to include it on your medical forms where it is asked for.
After your exam, email the completed CG-719K form directly to MEDAIP@uscg.mil.
Your form will need to be a .pdf so we recommend using a .pdf scanner on your phone or converting it to .pdf on your computer.
Make sure you submit all ten pages and double check that you signed on page 9 for yourself.
We recommend that you include your full name in the subject line of your email. I usually use this format: Last, First, MMC Reference Number. Mine would be: Gilman, Nate, 347478
We hope this made your life a little easier and if you have other questions the MM-SEAS team is always here to help!
No matter what, when you are ready to submit your application, you can choose to have the MM-SEAS staff create a perfect application, handle the USCG application fees and work with the USCG on your behalf to resolve any issues for a flat fee of $299 or you can choose to submit on your own.
