The Classroom Chair
This latest edition of the blog is direct to the required training for the basic USCG Captain's License for OUPV. Imagine sitting in one of these beauties for 60 Hours and if you upgrade to Master, then add another 24 Hours . That's what you are mandated to do when you attend the education syllabus for this type of certification. Some students desire a classroom setting for various reasons but there are hidden elements that actually serve to complicate the learning process even more. A task that can be better suited by a combination of superior online and in-person tutorial called Blended Training if you prefer. The seating arrangements don't look so comfortable from any perspective and wait until you calculate how much it really costs to spend time just sitting.
Let's see where to begin...travel to and from the class, traffic, fuel, lodging, coffee / lunch breaks, extraneous conversations in class, missing work, family, homework study, extensive delays in getting your paperwork back to file your application, extra monies for testing, and setting aside other important responsibilities in your daily routine. That doesn't even cover the detraction of the limited amount of time with the introduction of the new instructional material during the training periods. By all accounts that I have personally witnessed for years in numerous facets of this business, the learning sessions cover about 30% or less of the total time element, unless the class is produced and presented per required standards set forth by the National Maritime Center. There are outstanding schools in the market that deliver these specific in-person courses of instruction, and there are also some companies that the online version is so bad they promote you to attend one of these classroom mega-events. More times than not, the initial online course is offered at a much lower price point and once the negative reality sets in, it serves to drive the student to the classroom because of its poor design and capability. Sometimes it is more of a marketing ploy than an educational tool and you as the student pay the price.
Given the advancements of modern computer and media technology, you can take the required education by some outstanding resources, one such institution is; US Captain's Training www.USCaptainsTraining.com. There are learning techniques available that can effectively train you to complete the requirements and pass the examinations without all the trouble of paying a school to sit in one of these agonizing chairs for very long periods of time.
