Any USCG "6-Pack" or Master licensed captain up to 200 tons,
who wishes to assist disabled for a fee must have
a Commercial Assistance Towing Endorsement added
to his or her license.
This USCG approved course will cover all required
information inregard to assistance towing vessels. At completion of the onlinecourse and exam, SeaSchool will issue a certificate of completion which you will submit to the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard will then add the endorsement to your license.
No additional experience is required for this endorsement.
