Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA)

This 5-day class meets the requirements of STCW 2010 (Manila Amendments) for training deck officers in the use of ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aids).   After January 1, 2017, must have taken an ARPA course to continue to sail under the authority of their credential on vessels equipped with IMO-recognized ARPA and subject to STCW.

Mariners working on uninspected fishing vessels (with the exception of pure processors) are not subject to STCW requirements and therefore are not required to take this course.

Our next ARPA class is June 11 – 15, 2018.

The tuition for the 5-day course is $1100.
