6 packs are $795...then there's the drug test and physical and the $140 or so the USCG charges...all schools and packages are about the same cost wise...usually costs around $1000 when all is said and done.
The instructor make the difference in passing or not and whether it's fun or not...even informative outside of class material is important.
hardcorefisher...yep...just got cxed for lack of students.
you either have to take the 4 hour course or go and take the test at the CG. After that it's a short package submission...I don't think you need a new physical and similar things but I'm not sure...you better call.
Is this another opportunity for me to give Capt. Scott and 3b's another shameless plug? I think it is!
Seriously, learning the material is all about the instructor... look no further... living proof right here... it was honestly the first real "test" I have taken since college (graduated in '78), and I did pass on the first try.... and that's a real uncelebrity, uncompensated testimonial!
