Able Seaman Telepresence Course

Able Seaman Telepresence Course

USCG Approved Able Seaman Course complete with online testing

Telepresence and live Able Seaman Course that we have been offering since June 2022. Tuition is $1025.

This is the first ever, mixed Telepresence course for Able Seaman anywhere in the United States that includes testing either in our classroom or at home.

This Course will be simultaneously delivered to students in classroom, as well as broadcast live via the net. Students online will have the same level of interaction with Instructors & fellow students whether in class, or online.

The program will utilize a state of the art Telepresence, three camera system, and conferencing platform that will allow for as much interaction as if you were actually in classroom. In addition to the in-house instructor, you will also have a dedicated on-line instructor to facilitate communications with the podium instructor, answer questions, and field request. Its like having two instructors at one time.

The system is quite flexible and allows for participation through any modern computing device with a camera (webcam), and microphone.

All course presentation times are PST (Pacific Daylight Time) UTC/GMT -8 hours Pacific Time.
