Description

This course is for anyone with boating experience interested in obtaining a US Coast Guard license. One year of documented seatime since your 16th birthday is required, 90 days of which must be within the past 3 years.  Depending on USCG evaluation of seatime and experience, students completing the course would qualify for a license ranging from OUPV up to Master 100 tons Near Coastal.  Course topics include navigation, seamanship, safety and rules of the road.

The US Coast Guard (USCG) has approved the course and instructor for third party testing and a UAS Certificate of Completion is accepted as a substitute for testing by the Coast Guard. Students should plan to spend significant time studying on their own, in addition to the classroom instruction and it is recommended that students begin reading the Rules of the Road prior to the beginning of the class.

After completing the course, students have one year to fulfill other USCG requirements including documenting sea time, First Aid/CPR, physical examination, drug test, character references and proof of citizenship.
