About New England Maritime
New England Maritime has been on the cutting edge of maritime
training for the past 12 years. New England Maritime is owned and operated
by Jim and Leanne Hurley, both USCG Licensed Masters and Coast Guard
approved instructors. New England Maritime offers the following USCG Approved Courses:
philosophy of New England Maritime is to have a better educated mariner, taking
the knowledge gained in the classroom and applying it to everyday
use on the water.
success of New England Maritime is a result of the knowledge and dedication
of the instructors working with a fine-tuned curriculum based on
years of experience. A small student to instructor ratio allows
the student to reach their full potential. New England Maritime
courses are taught by USCG Licensed Masters who are USCG
approved to teach our courses.
April 1996, New England Maritime was the first in the North East
to obtain course approval for the Master Limited License (Launchtender).
The course was monitored by Coast Guard personnel and received high
praises for meeting their criteria in the areas of classroom instruction,
and exam procedures.
May 1997, the National Maritime Center approved New England Maritime's
OUPV and Master 100 Ton Near Coastal Courses. The course has been monitored by Coast Guard personnel and met the criteria
for Coast Guard Approved Courses. Again, we were the first
in the Northeast to be approved through the Boston Regional Exam
Center to offer training and examinations at our facility for these
first for New England Maritime. Spring of 1997 we worked with
the Coast Guard inspectors and a local ferry service to provide
a Deckhand Orientation Program for new employees to meet
Code of Federal Regulations requirements. This program continues
to be a great success. We now offer the Deckhand Training with Drug
and Alcohol Awareness to several companies.
Working in conjunction with the Barnstable County Fire/Rescue
Training Academy, New England Maritime received USCG approval
in December of 1999 for Basic and Advanced Fire Fighting.
This course not only meets the requirements for licenses of 500
Ton and higher, but also satisfies STCW training certification.
Students experience live fire evolutions in addition to classroom
lectures. New England Maritime is excited to be able to offer this
course to mariners that make their home in the Northeast.
In September 2000, New England Maritime's STCW Basic Safety Training
received approval from the National Maritime Center. New
England area mariners could now meet new training requirements to
retain their near coastal licenses. In addition to live fire evolutions
in the Basic Fire Fighting portion of the course, students participate
in on-water exercises covering use of immersion suits, inflating
a life raft, and basic survival skills.
England Maritime is ready to meet the maritime training needs
of our customers and awaits approval for additional courses.
We continue to strive to be on the cutting edge.
