Completing the Online Captain’s License Course

Passing all of the quizzes in a module unlocks a Certificate of Achievement and shows you are ready to test in person for that module. Print your Certificate of Achievement for each module and bring them to the in person final exams. Most students test for all four exam modules which make up the Captain’s License Course in one day.

Scheduling final exams

The cost of testing is included in the price of the modules. The in person final exams take place by appointment.

Follow these steps to schedule in person final exams:

  • Check out the interactive map below
  • find a location
  • get the instructor’s contact information
  • schedule a time with that instructor
  • Show up with your Certificates of Achievement and take the exams

When you pass your exams the instructor emails your student file to US Captain’s Training and we process your file. We then issue a Certificate of Training which satisfies testing requirements for the USCG.

Certificate of Training

Include your Certificate of Training in your captain’s license application packet which you mail to a Regional Exam Center to get your license.
