USCG Illustrations Workbooks for the USCG Marine Engineering License Exam
Mattapoisett MA 02739
In 2007 I started to provide specific trainning on the USCG Engineering Illlustrations for my students at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Since that time, I have continuously updated my materials to assist students and mariners with training aids for the USCG Merchant Marine Engineering Exams.
In 2012, the USCG made some major changes in the Electrical section of the Engineering exam. In addition, the USCG stopped providing the illustrations as a study aid. In response to this, I developed ELECTRICAL - the Unofficial Study Guide for the New USCG Marine Engineering Electrical Exam. Now in its 2nd Edition, ELECTRICAL has become the go-to study guide for the USCG Electrical Exam.
2017 ushers in the new editions of the Illustrations workbooks, completely revised and includes all of the latest USCG Marine Engineering Illustrations
The mission is singular: Provide the best training materials to the best Merchant Mariners in the world.
