Captain's License

Earn Your Coast Guard Captain's License

Ready to Become a Coast Guard Licensed Captain?

In addition to helping recreational boaters on their educational journey, we also help future Captains earn their U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s License. If you are interested in pursuing your Captain’s License to launch a career in boating, or just to have the advanced knowledge and skills, we can help.

How It Works

We are an educational partner with Mariners Learning System, an online, self-study course that is federally approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. The course contains all of the materials that you will need to complete your training and prepare you for the Coast Guard exam, which is also included in the course.

Mariners Learning System Offers:

  • Online Testing – no need to travel to a Coast Guard testing location!
  • Pass Guarantee – If you are not successful on your first exam, MLS will continue to support you until you do.
  • Online Access – learn at your pace and at your convenience.
  • Guidance and Technical Support – 24/7 customer support from boating experts.

If you do decide to purchase a program, please do so through our landing page, as we earn a small commission for the sale of the course. Your cost remains the same, but you are helping a small, local business. We appreciate you!
