There are four exams you are required to pass to earn your OUPV Inland Great Lakes - 6 Pack Captains License. If you fail one exam module, you can retake that exam two more times. If you fail the exam a third time, you will be required to repeat the class. This is the National Maritime Center's directive. Rules of the Road (30 questions): Need 27 correct. Plotting (10 questions): Need 7 correct. Navigation General (20 questions): Need 14 correct. Deck General, Safety, and Environmental (60 questions): Need 42 correct. If you follow along in class and do a little added studying at home, you have a high percentage of passing these exams the first time.
