Do I need additional sea time for a Towing Endorsement?  

Upon successfully passing your exam, a certificate will be issued that is recognized by the USCG as satisfying the testing requirements. 

 

Simply submit, with the application form and fee to the Coast Guard. Other than passing the Mariners Learning System Towing Endorsement course, there are no additional licensing requirements to have this endorsement added to a captain's license.
