"Captain James Casper’s Pilot Preparation course is simply the best and most informative class I have been able to find to help me prepare for the Puget Sound Pilots exam of 2012.  Jim is an experienced captain with the Washington State Ferry System, an experienced pilot who has gone through the Puget Sound Pilot training and has put together a course that is not offered to this depth anywhere else.Jim is currently a teacher at the Pacific Maritime Institute that offers many courses including ARPA, ECDIS, Bridge Resource Management and so on.Jim’s teaching style is very calm, detailed and friendly and he will make sure that you understand everything that is being offered. "
