Basic Exam Preparation

The 5 day Basic License Preparation includes an in-depth review of material required in each testing module. During this type of instruction, you will receive training on each examination applicable to your testing requirements generally: Rules of the Road, Navigation Problems: Chart Plot, Navigation General, Deck General / Safety / Environmental Protection. Some topics include but are not limited to: Rules of the Road, Publications, Charts, Plotting techniques, Aids to Navigation, Tides and Currents, Weather, Marlinespike Seamanship, Nautical Terms and Construction, Trim and Stability, Communications, Vessel Handling, Maritime Law, Emergencies and many more. Training also includes a review of the applicable diagrams from the Merchant Marine Deck Illustration Examination book and how to use reference materials located in the testing room.

Essentially, the Basic License Preparation combined with studying at home would include most examination topics except Navigation Problems for Near Coastal / Oceans examinations and more advanced Deck General computations. We recommend our 5 day Advanced License Preparation for those taking examinations for Near Coastal / Oceans modules.

 

Advanced Exam Preparation

During the 5 day Advanced License Preparation, focus will be geared toward the information required on the Navigation Problems for Near Coastal / Oceans examinations and more involved Deck General / Safety questions that involve formulas. Some of the topics include ETA, Fuel Consumption, Slip/Pitch, Deviation Table Construction, Sunrise/Sunset, Amplitude, Azimuth, Dew Point/Humidity, Cargo Loading, Broken Stowage, Lumber and many more. This license preparation should be taken after the Basic License Preparation or when you are prepared for most exams and want to focus on the Navigation Problems examination and topics focused on Deck General computations.

 

3 Day Test Preparation Only

Train the Trainer

Our 3 day Exam Preparation Only is for mariners who are preparing to test and want to ensure they have the knowledge level necessary to successfully pass all examinations. During the 3 days, mariners will be tested on all topics required as shown on their approval to test letter. Once the mariner completes the practice examinations, considering time is available, our instructors will provide tutoring / guidance on topics that are necessary to review at home prior to testing. This 3 Day Test Preparation should be planned at a time close to the testing date to ensure material is retained and / or give the mariner time to review material as directed by the instructor. This is not an instructional preparation course; please refer to our other license preparation options for instructional needs.

 

* Additional days of tutoring can be scheduled as needed.
