Confident Captain/Ocean Pros has new R.I. location

Confident Captain/Ocean Pros announced an expansion of a new satellite office in Wickford, R.I., and a relocation of the main offices and classrooms to the larger facility inside the Marine Simulation Institute on Aquidneck Avenue in Middletown, R.I.

Formerly in downtown Newport, R.I., Confident Captain is servicing mariners and recreational boaters, and it sees the move to the Marine Simulation Institute as an opportunity to join with another maritime training center.

“This is a great opportunity to provide a shared venue for our classes that is tailor-made to offer high-level marine education,” founder Capt. Kent Dresser said in a statement.

“The Maritime Simulation Institute staff, location and facilities suit our mission and they were eager to have our offices, captains and students sharing their facility. Simultaneously, our expansion to Wickford will allow us to better service the needs of the large number of West Bay mariners who are looking to complete our top-notch captain’s classes and training.”
