OUPV / Six Pack Captain's License
The US Coast Guard Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) license allows the holder to act as an operator of any uninspected vessel up to 100 Gross Tons. These vessels are limited to carrying six passengers for hire which is why this license is often referred to as the “Six-pack”. An example of an uninspected vessel could be a small charter boat or a small assistance towing vessel such as those operated by Safe/Sea.
The Confident Captain/Ocean Pros OUPV curriculum calls for 56 hours of classroom or online training, as required by the US Coast Guard, in lieu of the Coast Guard exam.
Upon successful completion of the Confident Captain/Ocean Pros OUPV course and in-house examination, a course completion certificate will be issued to the student.
The student can then use that certificate to obtain his/her OUPV license from the US Coast Guard. No testing with the US Coast Guard will be necessary.
