500 / 1600 ton License Prep Information Page

The License Prep class is intended for mariners who are preparing for
National Deck Officer exams taken at a Regional Exam Center (REC).

Mariners are given up to one-year to complete their license prep
goals. It is recommended that a mariner have their US Coast Guard
approval to test letter before registering, so that the duration of the
class matches the date of their approval letter. The cost of License
Prep School is $1,750 and includes three phases.

Phase 1: Classroom Instruction
This class starts off by attending the ten day Master 100 ton class to
build a foundation of knowledge. Students successfully completing
this phase will be issued a COLPAC 281 Master 100 ton course
completion certificate.

Phase 2: Distance Education and Classroom Labs
The student is provided with a flash drive from Freelance Software
(
Haswepipe.net) containing questions and study resources. They
continue studying on their own with email support from the instructor;
and attending open study labs as classroom space is available.
  • It is highly recommended that the mariner establish a regular
    email schedule so that the instructor may monitor their progress.

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.

License Prep Help
During classroom hours (8AM to 4PM seven days a week) I respond to
email within a hour or two. Although my preference is email, I will
respond to text messages sent to my cell as I would email, and I will
return voice messages in the evening after class.
