Texas Boat's Exchange, The Capt. School and 3rd Coast Captains makes no warranty or guarantee of a student's physical fitness, ability to pass our course and or to receive the OUPV or Master's Credential.  The NMC and the Coast Guard are the regulatory agency that must approve each student to receive their credentials.  There are many items for each student that could prevent them from receiving their OUPV or Masters credential.  If a student is concerned about their ability to receive their credential, prior to taking their course with us, they should contact the National Maritime Center about their particular medical condition, physical fitness, criminal record, or any other limiting condition.  The student should discuss with that agency how any limiting condition or issue might impact their ability to receive their OUPV or Masters credential, Medical Certificate or Waiver for a Medical Condition.  The student should remove any doubt about their ability to receive their OUPV,  Masters credential, Medical Certificate or Waiver for a Medical Condition from the Coast Guard and the NMC before spending the time and money to take our course.
