True Courses Captain's School

Capt. Ron Getter is still taking reservations for his March 3rd OUPV and Masters courses here in Louisville.

If you've ever considered getting your Capt's license, we brought True Courses* to town to make it easy for you! It is worth pointing out that most of the attendees from recent years did the course for education and to get the credentials that go along with their experience. True Courses has graduated some twenty-eight captains locally since 2009. If you'd like more information on the course, here is a link to Capt. Ron's flyer: link

Also, here is a re-post of a link to my own experience taking the course in 2009. I covered why I did the course, what I learned, and also brought light to some of my pre-conceptions and actual experiences: link

That's it for now--Stay safe, and we'll see you on the water!
