USCG Captain’s License Endorsements Exams

Well, the endorsement exams were a whole lot easier than the OUPV and Master of Vessels exams. When I arrived at the exam center, and I was given one exam, it was quite literally a tick the checkboxes exercise. The first exam took less than 5 minutes, and the second exam I completed before and handed in before the proctor finished grading the first one I handed in. He looked at me like I couldn’t possibly be done. But to be quite frank and honest, I have been sailing quite a bit, and I know my terminology and I know the rules. After I got my scores, I walked out a total of 10 minutes after I arrived. If I can do that, then so can you, and so can your kids when the time comes.
