March 2024 – 14 members of the New Orleans’ Maritime Safety and Security Team (MSST) earned their commercial captain’s licenses with Pathfinder Maritime’s blended training program. Members of the unit earned licenses ranging from OUPV to 100 Ton Master with tow.

Pathfinder has worked with MSST units in the past, and when the opportunity to work with MSST New Orleans arose, they jumped at it. Captain Bobby, Pathfinder’s founder, said, “MSST units bring a unique perspective to maritime safety and work hard to keep our harbor’s and waterways safe. They are true professionals and working with them is always a blast.”

Pathfinder’s online and blended captain’s license courses are a great way for Coast Guard units and other organizations to earn their merchant mariner credentials. If your unit is interested in hosting a captain’s licensing course please reach out to the Pathfinder team!
