What do I write for Endorsement Held or Sought on my CG719K medical form?

On the CG-719K Section I, you check the box for what current USCG licenses you hold. If you hold more than one type check all that apply.

What do the different boxes mean on the CG719K?

Deck - This is the most common USCG license group in the US. If you hold or are applying for any USCG license as a Master, Mate, OUPV, Able Seaman or Tankerman you check Deck.

Engine - If you hold or are applying for any USCG license as a Chief Engineer, Assistant Engineer, DDE, QMED, Oiler, or Tankerman engineer you check Engine.

Food Handler - Everyone who ever has the potential to handle food should check the Food Handler box. (It's required to be on your license for some companies no matter your position on the ship)

STCW - If you hold or are applying for any STCW credentials you check STCW.

Entry-level without lookout duties is not often used and the other two are for a few mariners who have specialized USCG licenses.

Common combinations of boxes that should be selected for Endorsements Held or Sought

MMC Held or Applying for - 100 GRT Master Inland

MMC Held or Applying for - 3rd Mate Unlimited, 200 GRT Master Near Coastal, Able Seaman, STCW OICNW, STCW Advanced Fire Fighting

MMC Held or Applying for - 2nd Engineer Unlimited, QMED, Tankerman - Engineer, STCW OICEW, STCW Advanced Fire Fighting, STCW Medical Provider
