Five Town CSD is offering the Blended OUPV Course using Captain School Key West’s Learning Management System, charts, navigation tools, and the USCG-approved and accepted test, with the option to continue on to the Master’s Level. The course qualifies students for a Coast Guard license to operate vessels carrying up to six passengers for hire (OUPV). Fee includes access to the Online section of 30 hours. Students’ progress will be mentored online by the instructor, and students have assignments to complete. During this time, there will be 16 hours of online mentoring and coaching on Zoom, Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Once online requirements are complete, there will be 16 hours of required in-person classroom sessions. The classroom sessions conclude with the administration of the four Coast Guard approved and required examinations.
Four Zoom sessions are being offered in summer and fall where anyone interested can learn more about the course, including required qualifications. The Zoom information sessions will be on July 26, August 16, September 21, and September 28, all from 6-8 PM. The full course runs from October 5 to November 16.
