There are no in-person exam sites near me. What can I do?

Pathfinder has the ability to add new exam sites, but must first receive approval from the National Maritime Center (NMC). Please contact Pathfinder directly to discuss potential solutions and allow a minimum of five weeks for the new site requests to be submitted and approved.
