Found the clarification in the MSM Vol. III, that 100% of my seatime will count since I'm an Operations Specialist, and after further investigation into my own record, I'm only getting credit for 5 years of my sea service, but still, that 60 months, 1800 days, 43,200 hours of acceptable transferrable time.
So it looks like I'm right in line for my Master/Mate 200gt. Anyone have any advice on how to expedite my application to get it through faster? Should I submit it now, or after I take my classes?
