Hundreds of Satisfied Captains
“The online courses were excellent, and I was able to earn my license on my own schedule! The PMT team was available for support whenever I needed extra help.”
“The training I received through PMT was incredibly beneficial! Capt. Bobby was with me every step of the way – from enrollment to submitting my license application, including personal extra help that I asked for on a specific test topic. PMT are not only great people, but have a deep passion for the water and assisting Captain’s to be the best they can be. They have created an extremely valuable training platform and a robust educational resource. It truly laid the groundwork for my continued career and success as a Master Captain.
“I completed PMT’s blended OUPV course and couldn’t be happier! The online lessons were informative and easy to follow, and the in-person sessions were great. I highly recommended their courses for anyone wanting to earn a license.”
