Online Captain's Class
The OUPV/Six-pack Captain's License is required for those wishing to offer fishing and sailing charters, drive a dive boat, or run sightseeing tours, etc. This license is commonly referred to as a "Six-pack" because it allows the holder to take up to six paying passengers and crew on the water.
The OUPV Upgrade to Master Captain's License course provides an opportunity for the holder of an OUPV/Six-Pack Captain's License to raise their grade to a Master-level license. The 25/50/100 Ton Master Captain's License allows the holder to operate inspected vessels as well as uninspected vessels.
The 25/50/100 Ton Master License allows you to perform the duties of an OUPV Charter Boat Captain and also operate Inspected Passenger Vessels that are approved to carry 7 or more passengers. In order to carry seven or more passengers "under sail" a Sailing Endorsement is also required.
The Sailing Endorsement is required if you want to operate an Inspected Sailing Vessel. This endorsement allows the licensed Master to carry 7 or more passengers while under sail on an inspected vessel.
The Towing Endorsement is required if you will be engaged in towing a disabled vessel for payment. Any USCG license of 200 gross tons or less, including an OUPV/Six-pack License, may be endorsed for assistance towing.
The Deck License Renewal course provides mariners an opportunity to renew their U.S. Coast Guard License. Certificates that the Coast Guard will accept in lieu of actual time on the water will be awarded upon completion.
