The National Maritime Center issued the following statement on September 30:

 

Potential Government Shutdown

 

This notice serves as precautionary information due to the potential Government shutdown. If the government shutdown occurs, the National Maritime Center (NMC) is authorized to maintain a very small cadre of personnel to support National Security emergent issues. If the shutdown occurs the NMC will:

 

• Push notification via the Website and List Server.

 

• Maintain the Customer Service Call Center.  888-IASKNMC will be open and monitored from 0800 until 2000 Eastern Time Monday through Friday. REC and NMC phones will not be monitored.

 

• Maintain the website. We will attempt to keep the industry up to date on our status via the website.

 

• Regional Exam Centers will be closed.

 

Exam Appointments will be cancelled and must be rescheduled after the shutdown is lifted. On line scheduling will be disabled.

 

  • Appointments to drop off applications will be cancelled and must be rescheduled after the shutdown is lifted. On line scheduling will be disabled.

 

  • There will be no walk-ins.

 

Applications may continue to be mailed or emailed and will be processed when the shutdown is lifted.

 

The NMC recognizes the impact that a potential shutdown may have on the maritime industry. We will do whatever we can to minimize the impact and to recover from a potential shutdown as quickly as possible.

 

Sincerely,

Jeffrey P. Novotny

Captain, U. S. Coast Guard

Commanding Officer
