Charter Fishing Trip
Chesapeake Marine Training Institute is pleased to announce that effective immediately, the Virginia-based marine education service will offer a bundled package of courses to recreational mariners looking to turn their time on the water into a business venture.

The “New Captain’s Training Bundle” includes the U.S. Coast Guard-approved Captain's Course, Elementary First Aid and CPR, Commercial Assistance Towing Endorsement or Auxiliary Sail Endorsement, and License Application Assistance.

This training bundle costs $1495, a $100 savings from the cost of taking each course separately. In addition to experienced, personal instruction, this bundle includes all materials needed to take each course - pencil, eraser, Weems & Plath parallel rules, Weems & Plath dividers, personal copy of U.S. Coast Guard Inland and International Rules of the Road book, spiral notebook, messenger bag, calculator and all needed training reference books and charts.

Mariners who enroll in this training bundle will still select which course times they enroll in, based on what meets their schedule.

Master 25, 50 and 100 Gross Registered Tons, Captain’s Course prepares mariners to earn their Captain’s license. The 11-day course is divided into three sections, including rules of the road, basic navigation and the four examinations needed to earn the Coast Guard license. The next available course is scheduled to start Monday, Feb. 4.

Mariners can choose to earn either their Commercial Assistance Towing Endorsement or their Auxiliary Sail Endorsement, depending on what they need for their business and what makes sense for their vessel.

The Commercial Assistance Towing Endorsement can be earned following a one-day course that covers towing terminology, towing procedures and rules of the road concerning towing vessels. Each student is administered a 15 question, multiple-choice exam. There are no classes currently scheduled.

All students who enroll in this bundle-training program will receive the license preparation and application assistance from Chesapeake Marine Training Institute’s Licensed Consultants.
