American Marine Training Centers, LLC, is United States Coast Guard approved and specializes in lower-level deck licenses including Master, not more than 100 Tons and OUPV (Six-Pack). We offer many other courses that are listed on our COURSES page. We are continually adding new courses. American Marine Training Centers, L.L.C. is no longer located in Port Hadlock, Washington. Our NEW facility is currently under construction and will be located in Sequim, Washington, approximately 3 miles from John Wayne Marina. Pronounced: “S’kwim” in the native language of the S’ Klallam Tribe, it means “Quiet Waters”. We are located in the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.
AMTC is one of the few mariner training facilities in the country who are authorized to give separate "Inland Only" or "Inland, Great Lakes, and Near Coastal" exams. At AMTC, if you only qualify for the Inland Master or Inland OUPV License, you only have to test for that license; which means shorter, less complicated exams for you.
Our format is simple, a complete captain's license course in one week. We typically start on a Saturday and our courses continue on consecutive days until we are done. That means you are finished with your course and your exams in one week!
While other schools are increasing their prices, we at American Marine Training Centers, L.L.C., have DECREASED our prices to make the Master Course and the OUPV Course more economically attainable for everyone.
There are no hidden fees; everything you need to complete your course, including your exams, are contained within the price of your course.
In all of our courses the student will test at our location, using our U.S. Coast Guard Approved exams. This relieves the student of having to test at the Coast Guard’s Regional Exam Center. In addition, we will assist you with preparing and electronically submitting your paperwork to the Coast Guard. We will work with you every step of the way in getting your license.
Our state-of-the-art, permanent training facility offers a dedicated learning environment. We supply all of the materials needed for the courses so that the student can concentrate on learning. We ask that the students show up for the courses with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.
AMTC instructors not only have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the material, they have also worked in the Maritime Industry. Each of our instructors have twenty years or more of experience. All of our instructors have prior teaching experience in the Coast Guard or the Maritime Industry. We also keep our student-to-instructor ratio to not more than 6:1 for all plotting exercises.
