Marshall Island Master Unlimited yacht license recognized by Cayman

ADVERTISEMENT

The Cayman Islands Shipping Registry officially recognized a yacht captain unlimited master license offered by the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) during a ceremony this week in George Town, Cayman Islands.

The Capstone Course certification, a Master (Yachts) Unlimited Tonnage Certificate of Competency (CoC), serves as a yacht-specific assessment. It is designed for captains who meet 14 prerequisites that are based on STCW requirements and includes relevant sea time to allow captains to gain their commercial unlimited license without reference to the cargo elements of the license.

The assessment takes five days, includes time in a simulator, focuses on RMI maritime law and is handled through Maritime Professional Training in Ft. Lauderdale.
