TWIC Enrollment Help

All mariners applying for any MMC Endorsement must enroll in the
TWIC (Transportation Workers Identification Credential) program
through the Universal Enrollment Center (UEC). The TWIC is an
identification card issued by TSA (Transportation Security

Enrollment in the TWIC program costs about  $140 and takes about
15 to 20 minutes. You will be required to provide some personal
information, and a government issued photo identification (a passport
is the best if you have one). TSA will take a digital photograph and
your fingerprints, which is forwarded to the FBI to construct a
background file. This background file is assessed by TSA for terrorist
threats, and again by the USCG for criminal activity.

Renewal of the TWIC

The TWIC is valid for five years. Renewal of the TWIC requires going
to a Universal Enrollment (UE) Center and updating your personal
and digital information.

With some exceptions noted in the instructions on form CG 719B
renewal of your MCC, which is also valid for five years, requires
renewing your TWIC as well.
