UPGRADE OUPV TO MASTER 100 TONS (ONLINE)
- Format 4 Weeks
Any applicant who has successfully completed your Upgrade OUPV to Master 100 Tons (MARINS-530) course within one year of application will satisfy the examination requirements of 46 CFR 11.201(j)(1) for original issuance of any one of the following endorsements: Upgrade from OUPV to Master of vessels of less than 100 GRT upon Near Coastal, or Great Lakes and Inland, or Inland waters, PROVIDED the applicant holds an OUPV endorsement or has met the examination requirements for OUPV within one year of application; OR Increase in scope from Master of vessels of less than 100 GRT upon Great Lakes and Inland, or Inland waters to Master of vessels of less than 100 GRT upon Near Coastal waters. A course certificate may be used for one application which results in the issuance of an endorsement and may not be used for any application transactions thereafter. This course does not satisfy the Rules of the Road: International and Inland examination requirement to remove a geographic COLREGS limitation from a deck officer endorsement.
The level of understanding will be at least equal to the standard for passing the upgrade from OUPV to Master 100 Tons Coast Guard examinations given in the Regional Examination Centers.
