NCLA can't control the time it takes to process an MMD card. That is the duty of the USCG.

i totally undertand they have no control over the MMD process. thats government issued. my concern was the process before hand. the actual recruiter saying one thing, corporate saying another. policy a certain way one day, different policy the next. and i know they're busy and i know it takes time but some sort of "honest" time frame would hav been nice. every time i talked to my case worker it was a couple more weeks, a couple more weeks. if they just would have told me things were gonna be drawn out this long i actually could have planned my "life" accordingly a little better. like i've said, i think its a kewl opportunity and i'm still all about it i just wish there was more consistancy and communication to where everyone is on the same page is all. from day one until today, all four people i've been in contact with from NCL have told me two totally diffrent stories and its just frustrating is all.

but thanx for the reply darren, appreciate it.

As a crew member of nearly 2 years, I can promise you that things have changed since I was in Piney Point. I was class 71, yes that long ago, and I have an understanding of the hire and training process, even though it has changed since I left. I worked for a year and half on the Pride of Aloha, and have recently left the Pride of America. The MMD can take time, and NCLA is not the front runner on the list of things to do with the Coast Guard some of the time. If there is something in your background that isnt entirely clear, it will dramatically slow down the process. They are no longer even doing the safety training at Piney Point. If you have further questions, I may be able to help out, since most of what i learned was on board, and not through the recruiter.
