3rd Coast Captains TM


Texas Boat's Exchange 281-384-2020, The Capt. School and 3rd Coast Captains has a very high success rate with our students.  However, we make no warranty or guarantee of a student's 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 factors that can impact your ability to receive your OUPV or Masters credential.  Things that can impact your ability to receive your credential include, but are not limited to; physical fitness for duty, criminal record, chronic disease, medications taken and or inability to pass the coursework.  These are some of the  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. It should be noted that students with prior criminal history have received their credentials.  Each student is evaluated on a case by case basis by the NMC.  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.
