The OUPV/Six-Pack candidate must have a significant amount of sea time experience prior to taking the course. The candidate must have at least 360 days of sea time before he or she is eligible to take a USCG Captain's course. The Coast Guard defines one day as four hours underway. There are exceptions for professional mariners working several shifts in one day and those who live aboard. Learn more about documenting your sea time.

  • 360 Days
  • 90 of the 360 days must be within the past three years
  • 90 of the 360 days must be outside of the boundary lines. Learn more about the boundary lines.
  • 50% of the experience must be obtained after the age of 16

The candidate must be 18 years of age to enroll in an OUPV/Six-Pack course.
