Re: Flash Card Refresher

I didn't take the class for the license but I did take a renewal class with Richard. He's a good instructor, fun to be around, just don't start talking politics, guns, etc. Home study is not the way to go IMO, you'll learn more from the interaction with everyone in class, and you'll retain more of the important stuff if you don't cram your head full of thousands of bits of unimportant trivia that "might" be on the tests. Not having to go to the CG testing site in the Federal bldg. in downtown Seattle is worth the cost of the class, no matter how much it is. One thing to consider is that if you are a licensed captain you are held to higher standards (blame) if involved in an incident. I was supposed to renew this year but can't pass the hearing test:-((
