Title: Electronic Submission of Mariner Course Completion Data  

The Coast Guard proposes to require approved course providers to electronically submit student course completion data to the Coast Guard within five business days of a course ending. The National Maritime Center will use this information to validate mariner course completion certificates submitted as part of an application for a Merchant Mariner Credential.  This proposed rule will also replace gendered titles for certain officer and rating endorsements in keeping with Coast Guard policy of using gender-neutral language.
