Covid-19 Update

Chesapeake Marine Training Institute is continuing to take all necessary precautions to sanitize our training facility multiple times a day.  At this time, we would ask that you please contact the administration office by phone or email to make an application or licensing appointment prior to coming in person.  We are limited to no more than 10 patrons in the building at a time which includes students currently attending classes. For this reason, it is very important that you call to schedule an appointment ahead of time.

Please note, the National Maritime Center has extended a lot of licensing deadlines, i.e. license renewals, approval to test letters, course provider training certificates, etc. that are dated between March 1, 2020 – July 31, 2020 and are now extended until October 31, 2020.

At this time, our administration office will be operating as follows: Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, closing daily from 12-1pm for lunch
