We (the MHTC) are in the process of
reorganizing the harbormaster training curriculum - the harbormaster
certification is now comprised of three sections:
1. A captains license (6-pack
2. the reserve academy and
3. the harbormaster section;
i.e. laws pertaining to harbormasters, on the water, boat handling etc.
The third section in being revised
by (us) the Massachusetts Harbormaster Training Council (MHTC).
Our recommendation is to work on acquiring your captains license and attend a
reserve academy. We on the North Shore will be providing valuable training
during the winter and into the spring which will include the laws pertaining to
harbormasters, on the water and boarding & safety techniques, in addition to
other specialized training.
For questions concerning the training call Rosemary or Scott at 978-546-9589
