The objective of CPC Offshore Passage is to teach students the skills necessary to plan and safely conduct a blue water voyage as skipper and crew of a twin screw, inboard power vessel up to 50 feet in length.
Students participating in this training voyage will build on the skills previously learned in CPC 1000 and CPC 2000 or other equivalent experience to expand their knowledge in Navigation, Voyage Planning, Safety, Piloting Seamanship, Boat Handling and Vessel Systems in a location outside continental USA. In addition students will learn how to operate and maintain the vessel in a safe and efficient manner at anchor and while underway. Students put their newly acquired skills to the test with specially structured underway exercises aboard one of Chapman School’s training vessels or a charter vessel. Classes are taught by U.S. Coast Guard licensed professional instructors through Chapman School’s unique"Learn at the Helm”™ approach.
This Program will be conducted in the waters of the British Virgin Islands or the Bahamas.
