Columbia Pacific Maritime offers a three course sequence that will satisfy the USCG exam requirements for Master or Mate of Fishing Industry Vessels. You can jump into the sequence at any point that you meet the prerequisite requirements for the upgrade class. Here is the sequence:
- The first class in the sequence is the 10-day Master 100 ton class. This class builds the foundation of knowledge and skills that the following upgrade classes require.
- The second class in the sequence is the 4-day Master or Mate 100 to 200 ton upgrade class. If you hold an existing Master 100 ton endorsement than you can start the sequence with this upgrade class.
- The last class in the sequence is the 2-day Master or Mate of Fishing Vessels. If you hold an existing Master or Mate endorsement with a tonnage limitation of 200 GRT or higher than you need only complete this one upgrade class.
The entire 3-course sequence costs $2,000, plus $100 for the two required workbooks, and can be completed in 16 consecutive days (the school is open 7-days a week). Please visit our website for the professional requirements for Master or Mate of Fishing Industry Vessels.
