50 ton inland for now. (Up to 12 miles out in the Gulf) Will be upgrading to 100 NC in a couple of years.

Congrats. Itís a big deal. The hardest test I ever took. A few years ago I went into a federal building in DC requiring ID and was allowed to bypass metal detector with the TWIC card. It is a confirmation of the knowledge you have attained through the years.

While not required for the MMC they are generally issued together. The TWIC allows access to ports under the authority of Homeland Security. I have found it easier to use for ID than the MMC.

I understand. I have had a TWIC card since they have been issued. I also have a MMC (9th issue or so, 1600 Ton Oceans). My point was he showed the MMC as an ID source.

"Captain" is easier than saying "Assistant Regional Inspector General for Audit, retired." And much more relevant.

TWIC enables unescorted access to Port and other security sensitive infrastructure (refineries, for example). No TWIC, no access without escort. Other additional requirements probably apply, but that's the baseline. Oversimplified, of course.

Some airport security let's you use the aircrew/employee security screen line with a TWIC. Others not. No consistency that I've seen.
