Four New Ways Your Membership Saves You Money

exclusive discounts that the Association has negotiated with other
organizations. Below are several that are especially useful for summer cruising and one that is new this year — an online captain’s
license exam-prep course.

In a brand new partnership with the captain’s license exam-prep course Mariners School, BoatU.S. members get a 25-percent
discount on this innovative online course. Mariners Learning

that offer an alternative to the exam testing held at Coast Guard
regional exam centers. Even if you’re not going to pursue a career
in commercial vessel operations, the courses are great for recreational boaters wishing to increase their knowledge and skills.
Mariners Learning incorporates broadcast quality, on-demand
audio lectures, professionally produced training videos, and integrated online computer based training. In addition to the online
