This Online Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) License, commonly referred to as a six-Pack License or Captains License, an uninspected passenger vessel is a vessel of less than 100 GRT (about 65 feet) carrying six or fewer passenger for hire.

Typically, an OUPV Credential is used in the context of small-scale fishing boats, SCUBA boats, whale-watching, fishing Guides and to meet the requirements for U.S. Border Patrol Marine Interdiction Agent positions. To obtain an OUPV Credential, 360 days' experience on Inland or Near Coastal waters is required. Of the 360 total days, 90 days have been the last three years.

No testing at the USCG Regional Exam Centers is necessary. We give the USCG approved exam in two ways:

Option One: In-person proctored testing, available Monday - Friday except for holidays 9 am - 12:30 pm must agree and follow the testing institution's COVID-19 steps to protect themselves and others at all times, including proper use of face masks, social distancing, and hand hygiene during testing. All proctored test facilities meet all the requirements of the USCG and as identified at 46 CFR 10.910.

Option Two: (available Sept 21) Live Remote Proctoring, available Monday - Friday except for holidays 9 am - 12:30 pm a secure and non-invasive platform that uses professional proctors and technology to monitor examinees live while they complete the certification exam. This method of test delivery allows the examinee to take the certification exam from their home, office, or a remote site, using their computer.

The process is secure, easily accessible, and monitors testing activity, and records all aspects of the exam session. Candidates who would like to choose live remote proctoring will need to run a system and webcam test on the computer they plan to take the examination before registering to ensure it will meet remote proctoring requirements. If they meet the requirements, they can move forward with scheduling Live Remote Proctoring.

Sea Service Requirements:

Sea Service/Experience can be counted on your vessel. A Sea Service form and proof of ownership are required. Experience on other persons' vessels can also be counted, however; a Sea Service form filled out and signed by the owner must accompany the application verifying experience claimed and vessel details.
