Online Blended Learning

STAR Center has received approval from the USCG to teach certain approved courses in a blended learning format. The USCG approval requires that STAR Center provide online “synchronous” instructor led training for knowledge-based lectures along with an onsite section at STAR Center to complete the required course assessments (practical and written).

All previously signed DP agreements will be considered to be amended to the less stringent terms of the standard AOR, effective immediately.
