U.S. Coast Guard Captains License

Submitted my application for the Masters License yesterday, it was accepted, however, I need to REDO my CPR and First Aid training. The evaluator said they had never heard of the company that administered the course, and although it was valid, they require it to be within one year. The cert. is good for 2 years, but not to the CG.
With all the security checks, drug tests, physical exam as well as the 6-7 month course, There is alot to go into getting it, but it makes it all that much more valid, IMHO!
They held the application and are waiting for the new documentation for the training and I will have the license upon submitting it.
Be sure, if you go in for the license that your CPR and First Aid are given by the Red Cross or The American Heart Association. And if you have any questions, Maybe I can help, just having gone thru it!
