§ 11.217 Examination procedures and denial of officer endorsements.
(a)
(1) The examinations for all deck and engineer unlimited officer endorsements are administered at periodic intervals. The examination fee set out in table 10.219(a) in § 10.219 of this chapter must be paid before the applicant may take the first examination section. If an applicant fails three or more sections of the examination, a complete reexamination must be taken, but may be taken during any of the scheduled exam periods. On the subsequent exam, if the applicant again fails three or more sections, at least 3 months must lapse before another complete examination is attempted, and a new examination fee is required. If an applicant fails one or two sections of an examination, the applicant may be retested twice on these sections during the next 3 months. If the applicant does not successfully complete these sections within the 3 month period, complete reexamination must be taken after a lapse of at least 3 months from the date of the last retest, and a new examination fee is required. The 3 month retest period may be extended by the OCMI if the applicant presents discharges documenting sea time which prevented the taking of a retest during the 3 month period. The retest period may not be extended beyond 7 months from the initial examination.
(2) The scheduling of all other deck and engineer officer endorsement examinations will be at the discretion of the OCMI. The examination fee set out in table 10.219(a) in § 10.219 of this chapter must be paid before the applicant may take the first examination section. In the event of a failure, the applicant may be retested twice whenever the examination can be rescheduled with the OCMI. The applicant must be examined in all of the unsatisfactory sections of the preceding examination. If the applicant does not successfully complete all parts of the examination during a 3-month period from the initial test date, a complete reexamination must be taken after a lapse of at least 2 months from the date of the last retest, and a new examination fee is required.
(b) If the OCMI refuses to grant an applicant the endorsement for which applied due to failing to pass a required examination, the Coast Guard will provide the applicant a written statement setting forth the portions of the examination which must be retaken and the date by which the examination must be completed.
