KINGSTON, N.Y. – Hudson River Maritime Museum will offer a captain’s license course at the Wooden Boat School beginning in March 2022.

It is the highest level license and is required for operators of both inspected and uninspected vessels. The credential can serve as proof of experience and may reduce insurance costs.
