Whether you need STCW depends on how big a license you want and what you want to do with it. If all you want to do is inland and near coastal stuff 100GT or smaller, you don't need it. I did my best to avoid it. Normally, I would suggest upgrading your license whenever possible but if you don't have a need for over 100GT near coastal, don't upgrade since you will need STCW unless you have already taken it for personal reasons. It isn't a bad course, it is just really expensive and time consuming.
