Finally, there will be a final assessment exam on weather forecasting and vessel routing based on practical weather chart reading covered in all the Marine Weather courses. Passing the final assessment will earn a certificate of successful completion, and eligible for Al Golden’s International Marine Insurance Services (IMIS) Corp.
