Rates:

***PURCHASES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE***

– If you are not able to attend a class that is paid for, a THREE-WEEK notice will need to be given, and at that point we can discuss repurposing your funds to a new class that will need to be taken within a 13-month period from the original class seat that was purchased. If less than a three-week notice is given, a $250.00 late notice charge will be applied (in addition to the funds already given).
$1,000 – OUPV
$500 – ROUPV
$300 – Renewal


ROUPV 6-Pak (Restricted to MN northern navigable lakes ONLY) – (4-Day Course)

  • Please note that this will only be good for an endorsement as Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels of less than 100 GRT upon Inland waters restricted to Lake of the Woods, Rainy River, Rainy Lake, Kabetogama Lake, Namakan Lake, Sand Point Lake, and Crane Lake of Minnesota. This will not cover anything else, such as MN Inland lakes, Great Lakes, or Mississippi.
  • If you need either of those available in your credentials you will need to take an OUPV class instead.
  • This course is typically sought out by individuals working on waters throughout Voyageurs National Park and Lake of the Woods.

I will be teaching the ROUPV in International Falls MN and Baudette MN

OUPV – 6 Pak (This course will cover a variety of credentials and will be dependent on what kind of sea-service time you qualify for) (8-Day Course).

  • Near Coastal (up to 100 miles off-shore)
  • Great Lakes and Western Rivers/Inland
  • Inland and Western Rivers

The OUPV will be taught in Duluth MN this year (Winter of 2021/2022).  I plan on expanding into Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio for the winter season of 2022/2023 with in person classes as well.

Renewal Course – 6 Pak Renewal when you are short on Sea-Service Time or coming out of Continuity (1.5-Day Course)

  • Will be taught in International Falls and Duluth
