We are one of the newest U.S. Coast Guard approved Captain's training schools in Texas.


in Corpus Christi and Seabrook (Houston), Texas!

We received Coast Guard approval to teach the Operator of an Uninspected Passenger Vessel course in 2011 after about one year of course development.  Approval for the 100-ton Masterís Upgrade course and Emergency Assistance Towing course was issued in 2012.  Although these courses are new, our founder and instructor Captain James Cook has been helping mariners get their licenses since 2008.  Captain Cook is a professional instructor and has been developing and teaching college level classes in mathematics and computer science since 1986.

Fees include all course material, study guides, instruction, charts, tools, exams and a Certificate of Completion.  Our exams have been approved by the U.S. Coast Guard so once you pass our exams you should be ready to apply for your license.
