Captain’s License: OUPV or Master up to 100 Ton (CAPT) – Monterey, CA

Our 2-week U.S. Coast Guard approved Captain’s Course meets the written examination requirement for the following National endorsements:

  • Master of vessels less than 100 Gross Registered Tons (Near Coastal, or Great Lakes & Inland, or Inland Waters)
  • Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) (Near Coastal, or Great Lakes & Inland, or Inland Waters).

The course certificate may be used for one application which results in the issuance of an endorsement and may not be used for any application transactions thereafter. In other words, if you are issued an OUPV, and in the future you want to upgrade to a Master Near Coastal, you may not use the certificate again with your application. You must complete the examination requirements to upgrade from OUPV to Master, in that case.
