The USCG requires you keep track of three different sea day numbers depending on what you are doing.
You want to keep track of different numbers depending on what you are doing with your license. If this is your first USCG License Total Days and Recency Days are what you want. If you are renewing and upgrading your USCG license you want to pay attention to all three. If you are just renewing what you have, Renewal Days is your key to success.
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.
