License Description   The OUPV license allows the transport of up to six passengers on an uninspected vessel.

Two licenses:  OUPV Inland: Allows operation of an uninspected vessel carrying up to six passengers on inland waters only.   Near Coastal: Allows operation of an uninspected vessel carrying up to six passengers up to 100 miles offshore.   Great Lakes Endorsement: If you have 90 days of your total sea time on the Great Lakes, you will be eligible for this endorsement

Upon successful completion (attendance and passing required exams), you will receive a diploma from The Captain School Key West. Students send diploma and application to the U.S. Coast Guard REC, along with your USCG Application to receive your USCG License.
