Application Assistance

The River School offers a variety of courses, both those required by Coast Guard regulations and others for individual professional development. Our courses are all transportable making them convenient and cost effective. Our instructors are professionals with service in the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Merchant Marine and the river industry. All are highly qualified in their field and are experienced, proven training professionals.

Dealing with Coast Guard Paperwork

The requirements for merchant mariner licenses are found in 46 CFR Part 10. All applicants for a license must complete an application package and submit it—along with the appropriate fees—to a Coast Guard Regional Exam Center for approval. Candidates for a license must be approved before taking the licensing exams (there are exceptions for those attending an approved course).

We can help!

We’ve helped thousands of rivermen and inland mariners navigate the rocks, bends, and bars of the application process. Would you make a trip on a river without being posted? You might, and you might be successful. But why take the chance when expert advice and assistance is available?

Consultation Services

Application Assistance - We provide a complete application package including all of the forms required for the license sought. Advice and assistance in completing the package is available via our toll-free phone number or email. Upon receipt, we review the package for completeness and contact you for any missing or incomplete information. Your pre-screened application package is then delivered to the Coast Guard REC in Memphis for processing.
Fee: $100

We Hate to Charge a Fee for Paperwork Assistance

We’d rather not have to charge a fee for paperwork assistance, but there are some folks out there who take advantage of our time and expertise only to attend training elsewhere. We’d like to help everyone, but time is money and our (800) number is meant for our customers - not the customers of other schools.
