As professionals we should share truthful and accurate info with others

From: Yamsailor..."Some of the Online OUPV courses offer a service where by you can call an instructor if you have questions however the costs to speak with said instructor is approximately $100/hour. So if you call an instructor and you spend 15 minutes with them on the phone you pay $100.00. If you call them again and spend an additional 15 minutes on the phone, you pay an additional $100. The time is not prorated."

This is not accurate or truthful information. The United States Coast Guard I know would not approve such a process!! Every step of the course approval process is scrutinized by the USCG. And NO one at the NMC would approve such a process...I can prove what I say.....can you?

As professionals and Captains that represent the USCG, we should share only quality and accurate information... bad move!
