Class details

The US Coast Guard Master 100 Gross Tons license allows the holder to act as an master (captain)( of any vessel up to 100 Gross Tons (GT) regardless of whether or not it is inspected or uninspected.

An example of an inspected boat that would require the operator to hold a master’s license could be: a high-speed ferry, a whale watch boat, or a charter boat certified to carry more than six passengers.

Students successfully completing the Confident Captain/Ocean Pros Master 100 GT course will satisfy the educational requirements necessary to obtain a Master’s license up to 100 GT. The tonnage of the master’s license that you are actually issued by the US Coast Guard could range from 25-100 GT depending on the tonnage of the vessels on which you have experience.

The Confident Captain/Ocean Pros Master 100 GT curriculum calls for 80 hours of classroom training, as required by the US Coast Guard, in lieu of the Coast Guard exam.

Upon successful completion of the Ocean Pros Master 100 GT course and in-house examination, a course completion certificate will be issued to the student. The student can then use that certificate to obtain his/her Master 100 GT license from the US Coast Guard. No testing with the US Coast Guard will be necessary.

How To Document Sea Time

In order to properly document sea time, candidates must fill out the Small Vessel Sea Service form and transfer all of their sea time information to this document. Please note that one form should be used for each vessel and that the owner, operator, or master must sign off on the time for the form to be valid. If the candidate is the owner of the vessel, he or she may sign off on his or her own sea time.

A day is defined as eight hours of watchstanding or day work, not to include overtime. On commercial vessels where a twelve-hour workday is authorized and practiced, such as on a six-on, six-off watch schedule, each workday may be considered for one and one-half days of service credit. Required sea service is specified in months or years, which are then converted to days, i.e., one year means 360 days and one month is 30 days. Service other than on deck is given half credit (e.g., 1 day credit for every 2 days served) and an approved training program may substitute for all except 30 days of the service requirement. On vessels of less than 100 gross tons, a day is considered as eight hours unless the Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection determines that the vessel’s operating schedule makes this criteria inappropriate, in no case will this period be less than four hours.
