Read this.  VERY Important Changes from the USCG.


The USCG has decided to remove all questions and illustrations from their website.  Mariners have until the end of August 2016 to view current illustrations and questions.  


The links we provide in our engineering software to the USCG website will no longer be available when the USCG completes this action.  We recommend anyone currently studying, to view the USCG provided illustrations while they are still available.  Once the USCG removes the illustrations from their website, many of the new copyrighted illustrations will no longer be available.  Here is a link to the USCG illustration and question web page.




Here is the USCG notice to remove all questions and illustrations: illustRemovalNotice.pdf



I am currently offshore and can be reached via email at:




For now, these changes affect engineering electrical, and refrigeration copyrighted illustrations used in the engineering licenses, with the exception of the QMED Oiler.  Most of the deck illustrations are in the public domain and available on our flashdrives.  Because of this, we are still providing deck study guides online but have removed the engineering study guide purchase buttons until further notice.  If you still need an engineering study guide, you can order by phone or email me at joe@marinerAdvancement.com and I will send you an email with an order button.  I want to make sure everyone is clear about the engineering illustrations and illustration links in our software prior to ordering.  Here are the direct links to the USCG engineering illustrations:
