Mariners Learning System offers new online courses

Mariners Learning System, a provider of online captain’s license education courses, released a new line of courseware it calls "Captain in a Box."

In addition to online access to interactive software, the product provides students with materials that include study guides, checklists, charts, plotting tools and mobile applications.

“When I was first exposed to the captain’s licensing process myself I was shocked at the procedure and lack of a single resource to help me through the process,” Mariners Learning System president Capt. Robert Figular said in a statement. “That propelled me to create a better, more knowledge-based experience for others who wanted to earn their captain’s license. ‘Captain in a Box’ is the next step, the end result of running a Coast Guard-approved licensing school for 10 years and training more than 25,000 online students.”

The company said there are two versions of the new training system. One prepares students for the OUPV/six-pack license program. The second provides the resources needed to obtain the 25/50/100 ton Master License.

Students can access courses in their living room or on the go with technology available on a Mac, PC, smart phone, iPad or tablet, the company said.
