USCG License Preparation Quicker And Easier With Computer-Aided System

Preparing for a Coast Guard license is now quicker, easier and less expensive because of a newly introduced computer aided teaching system according to T. Brantley Houston Jr., president of Houston Marine Training Services Mr. Houston said the new COMPU- PREP system combines the best of traditional classroom instruction aided by unlimited use of state-of-the-art computers, reinforced with a self-paced programmed home study EXAMPREP KIT.

When a student enrolls he attends a series of lectures followed by study and testing on the computer. An instructor is available while the student utilizes the computer. A concise series of manuals and reference books is included for study outside the classroom. After successfully testing on the computer, the student is tested by the Coast Guard and usually receives his license on the first attempt .

The COMPU-PREP courses are taught at the school's suburban New Orleans facility in Kenner, La., and Larose, La., close to the offshore oil service and fishing industries.
