OUPV "6-Pack" Captain's License Course

We currently offer the U.S. Coast Guard Approved OUPV ("6-Pack")

Topics presented are based on the four-part USCG exam:

  • Rules of the Road (Advanced)
  • Navigation General (Buoys, Weather, Tides & Currents, etc.)
  • Chart Plotting

Upon satisfactory course completion, students will receive our USCG documented certificate to be included in their USCG license application packet. The certificate indicate you have competed all the approved,  exams in-house with us and exempts you from taking exams at the USCG.

We will also assist you in navigating the application process, so that your final application packet is complete, accurate and travels through the process without unnecessary delays.
