In the January 2009 issue of Marine News, Richard Wells, Vice President of the Offshore Marine Services Association wrote the following:

"There are some tasks in life that layman undertake without professional assistance at significant risk. Three that come to mind are surgery, federal income tax preparation, and applying for a USCG mariner credential."

The article goes on to say:

"80% of applications are filled out incompletely or incorrectly, resulting in frustration and delays for the mariner."
