CAPTAINS LICENSE TRAINING COURSES
The Town of Lake Park’s Harbor Marina is an approved training site for U.S. Coast Guard Captains License Training Classes, conducted by Sea School.

(Course dates may be subject to change)
In order to qualify for the FREE Sea School Program, you must send an email request to the Town of Lake Park, stating your interest in attending a specific class, along with the coresponding scheduled dates.

The Town of Lake Park resident participant selection will be made on a first come, first serve basis. E-mail communications have a time date stamped specific header that allows the Town to determine when your request was received. Phone and in-person submissions are not accepted.
If you are not the chosen free resident participant for the particular scheduled class date you originally submitted, and you would like to be considered for another class date scheduled in the future, you must email new request, following instructions as outlined above.
OUPV Captains License
The U.S. Coast Guard calls this license Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV). The rest of the world refers to it as the "6-PACK" License. The word "uninspected" is a technical term meaning that the equipment required, and the design of the boat, are less regulated. "6-PACK" refers to the 6 passenger limitation placed on the boat, and additionally, on the license.
This course is an add-on to the Sea School OUPV (6-Pack) course. If you have not attended the OUPV license training course, you will need to start there, as it is a pre-requisite of this course. You do not have to get your OUPV license, but you will have to complete that course first, to be able to go on to this course. After you have successfully completed both courses and tests, you may then apply for your Master 25, 50 or 100 GRT license.
