Master/Mate 100 Ton Course CANCELLED DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT

$1,495

with Downeast Maritime, Inc.

Feb 27, 2017 at 8 am, runs for 1 week
100 Ton Master or Mate course is usually the first deck officers license that a mariner will receive. It is issued as a 100 ton license that maybe limited to 25 or 50 tons or may go as high as 200 gross tons ( with the upgrade course) and rated for Inland or Near Coastal waters. Oceans endorsements can also be done here but will require additional training and are somewhat costly and perhaps unnecessary for the water you will be operating in. When starting out we recommend that the mariner endeavor for the Near Coastal &/or Inland endorsement substantially reducing your wait time with the NMC. In order to upgrade from 100/200 ton master to upper level deck officer licenses you will need among other things an Able Seaman’s ticket. Because the AB course is repetitive of the 100 masters general subject module, we can offer you the AB course during the GS module. You will need another battery of tests and a fee of $199.00 will be charged in addition to the masters course. Clearly one can see the finical and time savings in this offering. You may also do the testing within one year of the class. This is a very thorough course. Studying is definitely required. This course is the foundation for all upper level deck officer licenses and one should come mentally prepared for this exciting challenge. Our passing rate is very high, but will require your dedication. No less so than the responsibilities of being a master of a vessel. Course is 90 hours (Two Weeks). Commercial Assistance Towing included as a endorsement: Please see USCG checklists: http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/checklists.asp.

To register go to http://www.downeastmaritime.com/ and click on the Course Registration Form or call Lindsey Pinkham at 380-4661. Registration forms are also available at MDI Adult Ed at the High School. NOTE: This class will be held at the Seacoast Mission in Bar Harbor on West St. daily M-Sa for two weeks.
