Great learning experience! My entry level OUPV instructor, Capt. Patrick, on a scale of 1-10, an 11. The staff is most knowledgable with all aspects of the USCG licensing process. Facilities & classroom are well kept and immaculately clean. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is included, as well as a bed if from out of town, with the tuition and the food was excellent! I asked them if I could keep my name tag and keep coming back for breakfast. Office staff great! And Steve, who has a negative comment below, great guy, in my opinion. A little "salty", but what do you expect in this environment. Overall, much more than I ever expected and would recommend this school to anyone. A great value!
