USCG Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel Course (OUPV)

Successful completion of the Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel Course yields the student a diploma which can be submitted to the Coast Guard for the issuance of a License. The required proctored examination is administered by us at one of our proctor sites, with no additional testing required at the Coast Guard.


Often referred to as a "six-pack" license, the OUPV License allows the holder to carry up to six passenger for hire on uninspected passenger vessels. Generally, this includes recreational pleasure boats, small fishing charters, etc.


This online course meets the equivalent of a two-week in-classroom course. Since the online course is completed at your convenience, course times will vary.



USCG Master License Upgrade Course

Successful completion of the Master Upgrade Course yields the student a diploma which can be submitted to the Coast Guard to "upgrade" an OUPV License to a Master License, up to 100 tons.


The Master License allows the holder to carry unlimited passengers on vessels inspected by the Coast Guard. This generally covers larger commercial vessels such as ferry's, large charter fishing boats and alike.
