This application and related materials included on the flash drive are for mariners seeking an OUPV (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels). An OUPV license allows you to carry six passengers and is often referred to as a 6-Pack license. This application will prepare you for your exams at the Reginal Exam Center but is also a great introduction for those who plan to take a U.S. Coast Guard approved course. Familiarizing yourself with safety, deck general, Rules of the Road, and introduction to Chart plotting videos will have you ahead of the rest of the class and can prevent the class from being such a struggle. Don't go to class unprepared!
