Sea School offers captains licenses including: USCG Captains License, OUPV, 6 Pack, Master, Charterboat, OSV, Water Taxi, Tow Boat, and Dive Boat.
The classes are held in a classroom are available in your area.
The 6 pack license is the most popular class that allows you to be a charterboat captain of up to 6 passengers. There are 3 different versions including Inland, Great Lakes, and Near Coastal.
We took the 6 pack course with Sea School and were very pleased. The instructors really new the material and were effective at getting all the students to comprehend.
Upon completion of the course, we took the captains license test and passed. We then took all our paperwork to the Coast Guard offices where we submitted it. About 5 weeks later, the official U.S. Merchant Officer certificate came in the mail.
Remember to renew your license every 5 years.
Overall we really enjoyed the Sea School experience and recommend to all those looking to become a certified U.S. Coast Guard Captain.
