USCG-Approved Classroom and Testing Locations

We have two comfortable and easy to access locations for the blended courses and in-person testing.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary Tower off of Seaport Boulevard in Redwood City is suitable for small groups of one to four individuals.

For larger groups of individuals learning or testing we use the nearby Sequoia Yacht Club.  It has plenty of space to set up large tables for chartwork and reference materials.
