Professional Credentials

Professional credentials for mariners are issued by the US Coast Guard as
Merchant Mariner Credential Endorsements. With some exceptions, crew working
on seagoing vessels greater than 100 GRT; and anyone who operates a vessel of
any size carrying cargo or passengers for hire must hold a valid USCG issued
MMC endorsement appropriate for the vessel and route they are on and the
position they hold.

How to get your Professional Credentials

    the endorsement that you need and the professional requirements for that
  2. Go to the Application Help page to learn about the MMC application process
    and download the Coast Guard forms; complete the application process and
    deliver the application package to a Coast Guard Regional Exam Center (REC).
