Professional mariners preparing to sit for a U.S. Coast Guard exam to receive their deck officer or engineering licenses can now also enroll in a home study program through Chesapeake Marine Training Institute.

The 500/1600 Master/Mate Inland or Near Coastal program prepares mariners to earn their license as a deck officer serving as Master or Mate on vessels not exceeding 500 or 1600 gross registered tons and operating within inland or near coastal waters. The course includes, among other topics, navigation and plotting, safety and rules of the road. This deck officer home study course is available for $1495.

Students who purchase this deck officer home study program will receive one week of exam preparation at the Chesapeake Marine Training Institute campus in Virginia.

The Qualified Member of the Engine Department (QMED) courses are available with one endorsement, all endorsements, Chief Engineer, Assistant Engineer and Designated Duty Engineer.

Endorsements are specifications of what job the mariner is licensed to perform. The QMED home study programs range in cost from $650 to $1095. Endorsements include oiler, refrigerating engineer, deck engineer, fireman, junior engineer, electrician, machinist, pumpman, deck engine mechanic and engineman.

Students who purchase any Chesapeake Marine Training Institute home study programs will receive access to a toll free phone number to talk directly with one of the experienced marine instructors.

Once students complete their home study program, they must take their test at a U.S. Coast Guard Regional Examination Center.

Chesapeake Marine Training Institute will mail all course materials – including everything from textbooks, charts and parallel rules to pen, pencil and eraser. Shipping is $35.
