Every year, I set myself at least one major challenge in each of the three areas that I consider essential to living a good life: you should always be doing something that feeds your soul, something that challenges your brain, and something that scares you silly. This year, my “brain” challenge is to upgrade my captain’s license.
It has been several years since I completed the qualifications for my Operator of an Uninspected Passenger Vessel credential. My license comes up for renewal next year, so this a perfect time to take the next step. I use Mariner’s Learning System courses since they are tightly focused on preparing for the exams and are completely online. Coursework I can do in my pajamas? Sign me up!
