We offer a 500/1600 ton License Prep class for mariners seeking National Officer Endorsements that require examination at a USCG Regional Exam Center (REC). The cost of this course is $1,500 and the mariner has one-year to complete the course and take the exams at the REC. The one year program has three phases.
Phase 1: Classroom Instruction
The class starts off with two-weeks (14 days) of classroom instruction in exam subjects of Navigation General, Chart Navigation, Rules of the Road, and Deck General, Safety, and Environmental Protection.
Phase 2: Distance Education
After completing the 112 hours of classroom instruction the student will be given a flash drive containing questions and study resources. They continue their studies on their own with email support from the instructor. Students are invited to come into the school as often as necessary for personal instruction as needed.
Phase 3: Exam Strategy
Prior to taking the exam students should come into the school and discuss a personal testing strategy for taking the exams at the REC.
