We're pleased to report that the Great Lakes Cruising Club has arranged with Mariners Learning System to provide GLCC members a way to enhance their boating knowledge or potentially even work as a USCG licensed captain. The new partnership offers specially arranged GLCC Member Discounts on a suite of six US Coast Guard-approved online captain’s licensing courses, from “six pack” to master 25/50/100 ton licenses. All classes can be taken online in the comfort of home or on the road and at your own pace.

The Mariners Learning System incorporates on-demand audio lectures, professionally produced training videos and online computer-based training. Included is access to online instructors, each a Coast Guard-licensed master who has gone through a rigorous Coast Guard instructor approval process. In addition, toll-free telephone support and access to staff instructors is provided.

Upon completion of a course, taking a proctored exam, and meeting other requirements such as documenting sea time and passing a physical examination, GLCC members simply submit, within one year, the application package to the nearest Coast Guard Regional Exam Center. Upon their review and approval, the USCG will issue the license. To date the system has trained more than 15,000 students with a 98.7% exam pass rate with an average grade of 94%.
