25/50/100 Ton Master License Course Overview

    It is possible for a student to go directly to a 25/50/100 Ton Master License without first holding a OUPV/Six-pack License. This course was designed to take a client with no current license directly to the Master Licensing level. If you currently hold an OUPV/Six-Pack License and wish to upgrade it this is not the course you would be required to complete.

    The USCG Master License allows the holder to operate inspected vessels as well as uninspected vessels. Any vessel that is certified (authorized) by the USCG to carry more than 6 paying passengers plus crew must have a Captain who holds a 25/50/100 Ton Master license. Ferry boats, harbor tours boats, whale watch boats are examples of inspected vessels.

    The Mariners Learning System™ suite of Coast Guard approved online courses has been built so that you receive the same lectures that you would get in a classroom setting. However, by being online, you now have the additional advantage of listening to the lecture as many times as you wish, whenever you want and anywhere you have access to the internet. This is a true anywhere, anytime learning solution!

    A popular feature of the Mariners Learning System™ online program is the use of on demand instructional video files that act like a personal tutor. For example, with each chart plotting question an online video instructor will review with you the audio lecture, show you the tools necessary to solve the problem, which are included in the cost of the course. He will show you the solution so you know what we are about to do. And finally the on demand video instructor will demonstrate how to solve the question. Once again, you can watch these videos as many times as you wish 24/7. If you need the additional help it is there, if you do not, simply move on with the course.

    If you require additional instructional assistance the course has a Help Desk built into the online classroom. This feature allows you to have personal contact with one of our online instructors 24/7. Complete telephone support is also available in the event there is a question that cannot be answered via the online Help Desk. Access to the instructors is through a toll free phone number that is manned by our Coast Guard approved staff instructors Monday through Friday.

    Mariners School’s online instructors are professional USCG Licensed Masters. Each has gone through a rigorous approval process and has met the standards of the United States Coast Guard to be certified instructors. They bring a level of knowledge, experience, and professionalism that adds to the total learning process.

    Once the student completes the four online Module Exams they simply make an appointment to take proctored their final exam at a Coast Guard approved Mariners Learning System™ test site. No testing at the Coast Guard Regional Exam Centers.

    Exam Modules:

    Rules of the Road: There are 30 questions which the student must pass with a minimum score of 90%.

    Deck Safety: There are 20 questions which the student must pass with a minimum score of 70% to successfully complete the module.

    Deck General: There are 60 questions which the student must pass with a minimum score of 70% to successfully complete the module.

    Piloting and General Navigation: There are 10 questions which the student must pass with a minimum score of 70% to successfully complete the module.

    Master 25/50/100 Ton: There are 20 questions which the student must pass with a minimum score of 70% to successfully complete the module.

    The student must pass all five modules to receive a Mariners Learning System™ certification of completion. If a student does not pass one or more modules, he or she may retest twice more without delay on the failed modules. Those who do not pass an exam module after three attempts must wait a period of ninety days (90) to retest. The student will be required to complete the entire course prior to being allowed another three attempts at each module. In this case the student must retest and pass all four Exam Modules.

    Mariners Learning System™ students are currently enjoying a 98.7% success rate!
