USCG Captain's License

Postby Anonymous » Tue Dec 13, 2005 1:17 pm

Hello All; <BR> <BR>After years of wanting to take the USCG captain's exam, just for the heck of it, I finally did so this past May - and passed. I picked up a 50 ton masters license for power, steam, sail and towing. <BR> <BR>I wanted to share the program I used with you, in case you were also interested. It was a study-at-home course from New England Maritime at this link: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <BR> <BR>I actually bought the study kit for the "Six Pack" test, but once I got to the testing station I was talked into taking the larger exam, and I am now glad that I did so. <BR> <BR>The program prepared me very well for the test. I bought it in January and studied for the four months leading up to my test date. <BR> <BR>I learned a great deal! <BR> <BR>All the best, <BR>John Barker <BR>Lord Nelson Victory Tug <BR>DUN WURKIN

Thanks for the info, John. Kathy and I decided to take a course for our OUPV and not greater than 100 ton licenses. We just completed the course work, passed the exams and are awaiting our Certificates. Don't yet know what tonnage we will be granted. We made the effort to get the licenses as many European countries are asking for evidence of competency. At least that was beginning as we departed the EU in 2003. And, we too learned a great deal. After almost 30 years of sailing, we learned more in these courses than we expected. Chuck and Kathy; 1984 HC33T, #60.
