Maritime Training Center Courses

Associate of Applied Science – Marine Transportation

This degree provides a strong foundation to a maritime career. It prepares individuals to handle the responsibilities of a limited tonnage vessel officer or owner. Graduates who meet sea time and other U.S. Coast Guard requirements will be qualified to work as a Captain on vessels up to 200 Tons depending on previous onboard experience and electives chosen. Many of the courses in the program are offered over a one or two week period or via distance to accommodate working mariners or military personnel. A keystone of the program is completion of assigned projects relating to experience working onboard a vessel.
