*** Notice ***
All Deck License applications;
On July 2, 2014, the U.S. Coast Guard published the Final Rule
regarding Changes to the Inland Navigation Rules (79
FR 37898). This Final Rule is effective August 1, 2014.
Please check available updates from the Help Menu in the main
application window. Updating your software will install new
questions and remove old questions. We are working on a revised
"Rules of the Road". This new rules book will be available
as an update when completed.
The Coast Guard
has begun working to create government-owned illustrations to
replace those that are copyrighted and will publish additional
information as that effort progresses.
We will continue to provide illustrations
and associated questions as they become available. Please check
available updates from the Help Menu in the main application
The National Maritime Center (NMC) has completely rewritten the
Electricity, Electronics, and Control Engineering questions and
illustrations. The latest question release by the NMC contains
74 new illustrations, all electricity/electronics. We published
these illustrations and questions as an update. Running the update
utility installs new questions, removes old questions and installs
new illustrations. A document containing questions with missing
illustrations (in the reference library), is also modified to
contain only the remaining questions with no illustrations. As
the NMC releases illustrations this document will get smaller.
If your sitting for an Engineer exam you need to completely understand
electricity. The subject mater has not changed, if you read and
understand the reference books on electricity included with all
our engineer training applications you will have no trouble with
the new questions.
The "Final Rule" has raised some issues with the Engineer
Limited license. The Engineer Limited Oceans and Engineer Limited
Near Coastal are to be combined. We have requested information
from NMC how the changes will take affect, license subjects for
the combined exam. The license exams, listed in the Deck
and Engineering Exam Guide and Check
Lists have not changed. We will keep you informed and make
application changes as we obtain more information.
Many sites offer training for US Coast Guard, Merchant Marine
exams. Most training software available contains ALL questions
(over 17,000 for deck). If you're sitting for 1600 GT Near Coast
why would you want to study subjects for the Master Unlimited
Our Merchant Marine testing software programs contain genuine
United States Coast Guard questions painstakingly selected for
license grades listed. All CD's contain a reference library with
many publications, check listings. Our license training applications
have a stand alone viewer to read and search the many books in
reference library. The viewer also provides access to all illustrations
and drawings with high resolution to display detail in large schematics
As questions, illustrations and help files are updated they are
available to users through a built in update utility (most applications).
Our USCG exam training software provides a important package for
Merchant Marine license training.

I recently attended the Second Annual Towing Industry Forum at
the State University of New York, Maritime College. A presentation
by James D. Cavo of the National Maritime Center, on towing licensing
was very informative. Changes include 500 course hours for licenses
over 200 GRT (500 GT International), and the introduction of a
new Master of Towing Vessel license.
