the OUPV 9 Day Class Outline, and 2011 OUPV Pre-Course
Pricing they get directly from TrueCourse. I do know the OUPV
Class is $795.00 and includes testing, physical, drug test, etc.
If a spouse or "crew" registers with the primary the cost is
$495.00. Other than that I don't have pricing and they did not
send me a pricing schedule.
I know that Captain Ron Getter is interested in educating boaters
so he is willing to work out a payment plan if money is tight.
Thanks for all you're doing to promote this class. I have a
feeling we will host this class year after year.
