CAPCA offers an array of maritime-oriented classes that are open to the public, from marine electricity and radar operation to medical emergencies at sea and basic offshore safety and survival.
CAPCA also offers some members-only classes such as U.S. Coast Guard-approved classes for renewing your captain's license and for refreshing your first-aid/CPR certification.
Providing continuing education courses for the professional development of captains is a key element in CAPCA's member benefit program. A captain’s license comes with the responsibility of staying current with laws, regulations, business practices and, most importantly, safety at sea. The continuing education program helps captains maintain or improve their professional knowledge through courses and seminars. We keep costs low by using competitive bidding and guaranteed class size. Many classes are open to the general public. Members enjoy discounted tuition.

You can receive course and seminar announcements through e-mail, on this website, and through CAPCA tweets. Courses are usually held during the late fall and winter months.
If there is a need or a request for any other courses or seminars, CAPCA will try its best to schedule them. Please make suggestions by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure a seat we recommend that you sign up as early as possible. We maintain a waiting list in case a last-minute opening appears.
