    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?

    Good afternoon,

    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:

    Name
    NASBLA Approved
    Birth date
    State
    Student ID

    It was signed by Capt Matt Miser on the back, dated June 23, 2002

    Thank you.

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

    Thanks

    Hi,

    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?

    Hi,
    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.
    Thanks,
    Tom
