Maritime Courses Offered in Kodiak
Due to need for offering classes and training in Maritime Transportation
For two years UAS has held a 100 Ton Master’s License/Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) course in Kodiak. Due to the large fishing fleet and Coast Guard Base in Kodiak, there’s a need for offering classes and training in Maritime Transportation. This year a local adjunct Professor, Andy Schroeder, was trained to offer more classes throughout the year. Upcoming courses include: Able Seaman, Radar Refresher, and Upgrade to 200 Ton Master among others. According to Assistant Professor of Marine Transportation Neil Nickerson, classes have been held on the Coast Guard Base in partnership with their education program, with plans to move course to to Kodiak College once a large renovation project is completed.
