As usual classes are filling fast after the Sportsman’s Show. The next available OUPV/Master 100 ton class is April 1, 2013. There are 3 spaces available in this class, so you need to call now if you are looking to schedule a class before summer.
While it is not a requirement, I highly recommend that you get your USCG approval BEFORE taking the course. The approval process takes about a month (for the TWIC and the MMC application combined); so you need to plan ahead and start early.
