ENGINEERING CAREER ADVANCEMENT PROGRAM (ECAP)

Our Engineering Career Advancement Program is for students who desire assistance in preparing for the Engineering license exams. It involves multi-faceted training methods to include lectures, hands on training aids, illustration review, quizzes and practice examinations. The lectures emphasize the design and purpose of engineering equipment, systems and fundamentals. The hands on training aides are intended to allow the student to reinforce classroom training through practical application. The illustration reviews are designed to help the student to interpret USCG illustrations and identify associated components. Periodic quizzes are given to perform knowledge checks on instruction and to prepare the student for the exams. Practice exams will be given at the completion of each module to identify areas of focus. It is highly recommended that the student gains USCG approval to sit for the exams prior to attending ECAP. In addition, the student should consider scheduling the exams to coincide with the completion of the training.

Mid-Atlantic can assist you in passing your Coast Guard Deck and Engineering License Exams.
We do this by going over all the applicable modules for subjects covered in each exam.
