Captain’s License Courses



GLC Training is a US Coast Guard Approved Testing Facility and one of our more popular classes is the Captain’s License Course and Test (Master up to 100 Gross Tons). The Captain’s License course consists of five topics which include: rules of the road, general navigation, chart navigation, the upgrade to master’s deck general & safety followed by US Coast Guard Approved testing on site.

The Master’s License qualifies you for certain duties of an OUPV and in addition operate vessels that have been inspected by the US Coast Guard’s Marine Safety Office such as:

  • Marine Construction
  • Dive Boats/Excursions
  • Vessel Deliveries
  • Towing Vessels
  • Day Sailing Charters
  • Ferrying Passengers
  • Fishing Charters
  • Rescue Vessels
  • Marine Salvage Vessels

The U.S. Coast Guard requires the skipper of such a vessel to be licensed if compensation is accepted for vessel operation. Please note these are vessels for hire and are not recreational boats. This license is for commercial purposes and can generate an excellent income whether used full or part time. GLC Training provides continuing education for many of the Department of Natural Resource Officers, State and Local Marine Division Officers, the Army Corp. of Engineers, Homeland Security and Border Patrol.


Our week long course includes all training, materials, and testing, and is “Guaranteed or your money back”.
