Salty Tar Boat Company is a proud affiliate of US Captain's Training based out of Traverse City, Michigan, a fully accredited USCG licensing school. They operate a little different in that they give the student the flexibility of choosing whether to study entirely on-line, and then sit for final examination at an approved in-house proctor location, or study in a blended on-line / classroom format.
The On-Line Format This consists of the four core modules required to pass the US Coast Guard requirements, including Deck General, NavigationGeneral, NavigationProblems, and Safety. The applicant will need 360 days of documented sea time. Training materials are available for additional purchase. After completion of all modules the student presents his or her certificates of completion for proctoring at an approved facility. If you decide to choose this route you may later decide to choose our facility for final testing.
The Blended Format This combines the convenience of completing modules online with the grounding of in-class work. The student completes the four above mentioned modules on-line and then enters an approved classroom facility for the "final polish," ensuring each student has a full grasp of the materials covered prior to the final proctored test and tailors the experience to the individual.
The most up-to-date locations for facilities, prices, and class offerings are available on their website, but the prices are approximately $660 for the Captain's License on-line format and $1,545 for the blended classroom, which includes 5 days of personalized instruction and materials (you can elect not to purchase materials and save the difference in price). Just choose our location in Georgia, or call us and we can help sign you up.
