Mariner Training and Assessment Data (MTAD)

The National Maritime Center (NMC) recommends that all approved Marine Training Providers (MTPs), whose courses are being approved, renewed, or modified after January 01, 2013 submit their mariner course completion data electronically utilizing MTAD.

The MTAD program allows training providers to submit course completion information via the Coast Guard’s “Homeport” website free of charge. After an MPT submits information via Homeport, the encrypted course completion information is then merged with the mariner’s electronic record and is available to NMC evaluators when the mariner applies for a Merchant Mariner Credential. This paperless method will further streamline the application process and reduce the possibility of fraudulent course completion certificates.
