Launch Tender Package

(USCG Limited Masters - U.S. Coast Guard Approved):

 

This two day, sixteen hour, hands-on course is for anyone who wants to learn how to safely operate a powerboat, improve their on-the-water boat handling skills and earn a U.S. Coast Guard Limited Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels or Master of Self Propelled Vessels engaged in launch tender service upon inland waters (not more than 1/2 nautical mile from shore). This license is designed for those working at yacht clubs, marinas, camps, and community waterfront centers as a launch driver, sailing instructor or camp counselor. This course covers safe boat operation, docking, anchoring, navigation rules & navigation aids, safety equipment, emergency procedures, rendering assistance and a host of other areas. The topics are covered using a variety of techniques in the classroom and dockside, emphasizing on-the-water practical application of all skills.

The United States Coast Guard and National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) have approved this course which also meets the boating safety certificate requirements in New York. Upon successful completion of this course and a 50 question multiple choice written exam, you will receive a SUNY Maritime College certificate which exempts you from the USCG exam when applying for a Limited Masters or Limited OUPV (Launch Tender) License. Course completion or exam certificate allows recipient twelve (12) months to submit USCG License application. You DO NOT have to complete any of the license requirements BEFORE the course. The application, course completion certificate and additional fees must be completed within twelve (12) months AFTER completing the course.
