Course Description

This License Advancement Program offered at MITAGS is designed for able seafarers sailing on Inland or Great Lakes waters seeking an original USCG license for "Mate 1600 Tons" up to" Mate Any Gross Tons." The course materials prepare students for the USCG exam modules, and elevate their skills to be at a peak performance prior to the exams. The course includes emphasis on navigational skills (including tides an currents), and Rules of the Road. Ample time is dedicated to the topics found within the USCG General Exam Modules. This is also a solid review course for mates desiring to upgrade to Inland/Great Lakes Master.

The spacious training lab is equipped with large chart tables (for each student), nautical publications, and internet access. The lab is open in the evening for student homework.

Students who complete this course will also need to complete the USCG approved Original Radar, Basic and Advanced Fire Fighting which are generally schedule prior to the start of LAP Great Lakes. These courses are required by the Coast Guard for an orignal "Mate - Great Lakes."
