The Captain School USVI has a proven method of instruction and has graduated over 8,000 students to date from our program allowing mariners to apply for a Captain's License or what is now called USCG Merchant Mariner's Credential. After completing our approved courses, mariners are given the Coast Guard Exams at our facilities so no further testing by the Coast Guard is required.
The mission of The Captain School USVI is to provide a quality educational experience in the classroom through demonstrations of practical competencies at entry and operational levels. Course offerings include: OUPV, Upgrade to Master, Sailing, Towing, STCW Basic Safety Training, Crowd Control, Crisis Management, Leaership and Managerial Skills and Security Officer-Vessel, Company, and Port Facility, American Heart First Aid / CPR, and EFR First Aid / CPR.
We keep a low student to teacher ratio offering a better opportunity for one on one interaction with the students. The curriculum is supported by a cadre of qualified instructors approved by the US Coast Guard who bring a wealth of practical experience to the educational environment.
The Captain School was established in St.Thomas USVI in 1994, and taught its first US Coast Guard approved course in the United States in 2000 after a two year review by the Coast Guard.
Many of the students at the Captain School USVI are employed or will be employed in the thriving charter boat industry as well as the many ferrys and fishing boats that ply our waters.
