Why Hold A Coast Guard License? 
  • Prove your qualifications
  • Fullfill a job requirement
  • Become a Charter Boat Captain
  • Generate income
  • Create a tax deduction
  • Satisfy a personal ambition
  • Whatever your reason may be, a Coast Guard   captain's license   is something to be proud of. In fact, less than two percent of all boaters have obtained one. Why are not more boaters Coast Guard licensed captains? Probably because the usual procedure to get a license can be quite frustrating.

    Many people find that completing the required forms, studying the mandatory materials, and trying to prepare for the written examination on their own can be daunting. And when you finally do get ready, you have to drive to an Exam Center in Ohio to take the test.

    Once you have made your decision to pursue licensing, you then must decide how to prepare for the exam. Make no mistake about it. The Coast Guard exam is difficult. Regardless of your background, the exam will be a challenge.

    The test is largely commercial in nature. The average boater is not familar with many of the subjects which include fire fighting, Coast Guard regulations, commerical towing, and many others. For example, the "Rules" portion of the exam is considered by many to be the most difficult since it primarily deals with commerical rules and regulations. It is loaded with difficult questions and a grade of 90 percent is needed to pass.

    When making your decision to pursue a Coast Guard license, you can be assured of one thing -- it never gets easier, only more expensive and more difficult. NOW is always the best time to get started. Once you have made up your mind, though, that is where Sea Tech Marine Training can help.
