200 Ton Masters Coursework
22 November 2007 | Fort Lauderdale
I have relocated to the Embassy Suites right next door to the IYT headquarters where all of the course work takes place for the 200 ton masters program. The hotel is very nice but I am not seeing much of it. The class room part of this program runs Monday - Sunday and seems to ignore Thanksgiving (perhaps it's because the British are running the place?).
We have an exam every morning except Monday. Those applying for the MCA and USCG licenses must get a 90% on the Colregs and Navigation exams and 70% on the Ship Stability and Construction, General Deck Knowledge, Weather, etceteras. So far the program has been a great refresher in some areas and has improved my knowledge substantially in others.
