This software is for the following licenses :

Mariner Advancement 3rd & 2nd ENG examination preparation software is designed for 3rd Assistant Engineer Motor and Steam Licenses.  Our software contains 2795 Engineering General questions, 1354 Engineering Safety questions,  2203 Motors / Aux Boilers questions, 1975 steam propulsion questions and 2041 Electrical questions.   We have also included a new section containing all of the electrical questions that the USCG has released that did not release with the referenced illustration.  These illustrations are not included due to the fact the USCG claims they do not own the copyright to the material and their legal team is currently looking into the situation.  Currently there is no way to acquire these illustrations as they have not been released to the public.

Mariner Advancement 3rd & 2nd ENG 4.0 contains the following new features - a speech synthesizer which will read the question and answers using the Windows speech synthesizer,  a new preview feature for the explanation window, and a new preview feature for the question iillustration window.

The premium content includes written explanations, groupings of related questions, solutions, and edited illustrations to over 1800 of the  U.S.C.G engineering exam questions. We  provide explanations for refrigeration graphs, vernier calibers, electrical problems, barge displacement problems and more. Currently, the additional content covers  the electrical, general,and motor sections.  Not all of the exam questions have this feature.  We will continue to add additional content in the future.  Any new additions will be available to Premium customers as free updates, for at least one year after purchase, downloadable from our resources page.

The flash drive also contains an Engineering Resources folder that includes U.S. Navy training manuals.  These are in PDF format and include Damage Controlman, Engineman, Fireman, Machinary Repairman, Introduction to Electrical, Introduction to Generators, Tools, and Fluid Power.  Many of the coast guard questions come from these manuals.

USCG Administered Engineering Exams

The USCG generates an exam  from a question bank consisting of thousands of questions.  Although the question bank is the same for these three licenses the exams differ in the number of tests.  See the chart below for specific USCG exam requirements.  Contact USCG to receive an evaluation for testing and information on other requirements for obtaining this Merchant Mariner License.


  • Reduced question list.  All questions are hand picked by USCG licensed merchant mariner officers.

  • Each question provides a reference for the USCG book and question number.

  • The user has a choice as to the number of questions per test.

  • The user has the option to display all answer choices or only the correct answer.

  • The user has the ability to tag questions while testing and revisit the tagged questions through the tag question menu without having to search through the entire question database.

  • The user has the ability to go back through the current test questions and review questions already answered.

  • Full search utility of all questions and illustrations.

  • USCG released illustrations are provided in the software and loaded with each relevant test question.

  • Once you answer a question correctly Mariner Advancement(R) temporarily removes that question from the list. This allows you to focus on the more difficult questions rather than wasting time reviewing questions you already know.

  • Speech synthesizer is new to version 4.0.

  • Preview screens are new to version 4.0 which speeds up testing by allowing the user to determine if they need  to take the time to load the explanation or illustration in full screen mode.
