>Coast Guard Traveling Examination Teams

>The Coast Guard National Maritime Center (NMC) recently issued a notice explaining how to request a Traveling Examination Team (TET) to provide qualified merchant mariners located in regions of considerable distance from a Regional Examination Center (REC) with the ability to take required examinations without having to travel. There must be a group of at least 20 applicants in one location, which must be at least 150 miles from the nearest REC. In addition, the TET request must include a letter of undertaking (LOU) providing for the reimbursement of Coast Guard expenses associated with travel to the remote site.
