In order for all existing mariners to meet STCW 2010 Requirements and have your credential valid after 12/31/16, you must complete the gap closing requirements noted below and submit it to the USCG to have any limitations removed from your MMC PRIOR to 12/31/16. You can renew your MMC between now and 12/31/16 without meeting the gap closing requirements but will need to submit the training prior to 12/31/16 for the renewed MMC to be valid after this date with no limitations.
