I took the safety course back in 2011 and was issued a laminated card. The card is beginning to deteriorate and would like to get a new card issued. Can you please send a new card?

I completed the safety course and received a completion card years ago. I am wondering if there is a more up-to-date card that I may receive (the one I have is pretty much a basic printed piece of laminated paper) to use in my home state of New Hampshire.
I am able to provide all information from my information from the card including:
It was signed by Capt Matt Miser on the back, dated June 23, 2002

How do you take the online course? This website is not easy to navigate.

I lost my Nautical Know How card. I took the online course sometime in 2005 or 2006. Can I get a new one sent to me? I don’t know my ID # that was on it, but my birthday is 090985 and I’m from MA, if that helps for looking me up. Thank you.

What if I took this course in 2002 and passed it, am I still certified? Can I receive a copy of my license?

Is your course recognized in the state of New Jersey? Also how do I sign up for it?

I took this course years ago. My insurance company requires “within three years” for discount. I’m attempting to retake the course, but there doesn’t appear to be a direct link to follow on the website. Please advise.
