I read it as with 3 month's sea time in the past 12, or 12 months in the past 5 years, all you need is a valid medical and off you go. BUT!
If you have been ashore for 5 years with an expired CoC, or you have insufficient time, you'll need to do a refresher in MED and PPS. You'll be asked to do an EKG Exam at your renewal level, too.
