if you want to go for higher tonnage licenses you need to get your able seaman ticket and then sail on that. once you get 1080 days on a larger boat ( > 200 GRT) and take about five months and $25,000 worth of classes you'll be able to sit for your 500 GRT masters or 1600 GRT mates. with the new USCG reg and STCW requirements if you want an unlimited ticket your best option is to go to a maritime academy.
