Sorry the answer is no. While it might be possible to cover the course work there is a great deal more, there is the exam, fingerprinting, physical, drug testing, letters of reference, an oath before a coast guard officer. In addition you will have to document sea time. And nowadays apply for a TWIC card from homeland security
. The license
is good for five years and then must be renewed.
Based upon what you write, I would suggest that you look into something like an ASA sailing school
where you can accumulate certificates showing competency in a keel
boat or catamaran
, bareboat charter
, piloting, navigation
etc. These courses usually have prerequisites so enquire with whatever sailing school
interests you. There are plenty in the USVI or the Caribbean.
