USCG Approved Course
No Test at Coast Guard!

Sea School is proud to have been approved by the United States Coast Guard to offer this new and unique course for the OUPV (6-Pack) Captain's License. 
It is unique in that successful completion of this course will result in a United States Coast Guard license being issued without requiring the usual United States Coast Guard exam.

The U.S. Coast Guard calls this license Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV). The rest of the world refers to it as the "6-PACK" License.  The word "uninspected" is a technical term meaning that the equipment required, and the design of the boat, are less regulated. "6-PACK" refers to the 6 passenger limitation placed on the boat, and additionally, on the license.

The OUPV (Captain's License) license comes in 3 versions:  Inland, Great Lakes and Near Coastal.

The Near Coastal enables one to travel up to 100 miles offshore. This presently opens the door to the Bahamas and, when the stand-off is ended and trade reopened, to Havana.

Inland waters means bays, rivers, sounds, etc., of the U.S.

All OUPV licenses are for vessels to 100 Gross Tons.

Throughout the days of class instruction you will learn practical aspects of boating, including Rules of the Road, Radio Operation, Survival Techniques, Distress Signaling, Boating Terminology, Boat Equipment, Use of Flares, Use of Life Jackets, Techniques of Seamanship, Anchoring, Aids to Navigation, Boat Registration, Navigation, Knot Tying, Firefighting and more.

After completing the course, students take Sea School's exam. Our test is based on the course material and you should be ready to test after about 1 to 2 weeks of reviewing the material.

Testing is conducted at SeaSchool offices in Freeport, NY --- Charleston, SC --- St. Petersburg, FL --- Ft. Lauderdale, FL --- Panama City, FL --- Mobile, AL, and at various classroom locations on the East Coast and the Gulf.

The Captain's License can be fully upgraded to a Master License.

Sea School provides all Coast Guard paperwork and assists in properly filling it out. All of the other requirements for the OUPV license are the same as listed on the Licenses & Requirements in this brochure.  Please feel free to call or e-mail us for answers to any further questions pertaining to this new and unique course.
