NOW, our courses are totally mobile using the Moodle Mobile App for Android or Apple devices , no internet connections needed once the courses have been downloaded. Be it at work, in class or on the water, you have access to your course materials. While the classes can be done on your smartphone, I suggest a little bigger screen such as an iPad or tablet.

"I was very impressed with the course as I have never taken an online class. Everyone I have talked to and e-mailed have been very polite and professional. I will recommend this school to the people I work with. I have been an operator of tugboats for over 30 years and found this class an eye opener to what I had forgotten." – Capt. Luther E.
