I haven't seen any discussion here of yet another requirement for USCG Licensed Mariners.
See the link at http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/Whats_new_to_NMC/twic_card.pdf
It is intended to allow unescorted access to controlled areas in ports
, airports, etc. Since I do my work on pleasure craft and am not required to be in controlled areas of ports
and the like, it seemed I shouldn't need a Transit Workder ID Card, but after my question to them, the USCG assured me everyone with a license
must have one or risk revocation of their certificates.
Has anyone else had any experience with this?
