Where do do STCW 95 in Canada, Mexico or Carribean?

Hello everyone,

I've been travelling and teaching scuba for the past five years and I've decided a life at sea is the life for me. I'm heading to Vancouver Island in September and driving down to Baja, Mexico in October and was wondering if anyone knew any places that offer the STCW 95 at a reasonable price somewhere on the west coast?

My current plan is to work a dive season in Baja and then I'll (probably)fly back to South Africa to complete my coastal skipper and power boat tickets before searching for crewing opportunities. However, I'd love to get onto boats as sooner, so I figure it would be a good idea to do my STCW as soon as possible. The STCW is only around $400 in South Africa, but most places I've looked up in Canada, the U.S. and the Carribean are offering the course for 750-800 US dollars which is pretty expensive. Does anyone know of any reasonably price courses in the Americas or Carribean?

Any help appreciated.
