The Coast Guard published Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) 08-20 announcing several updates based on the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective March 19, 2020, the Coast Guard’s 17 Regional Examination Centers (REC) and 3 Monitoring Units (MU) are closed to the public until further notice.
Both MITAGS East and West Coast in house classroom and simulation training activities have been suspended due to concerns over the Novel Coronavirus and COVID-19. Although the schools have robust risk mitigation strategies in place, government regulation and CDC guidelines led us to this decision. In the case of our West Coast Campus, we are complying with Governor Jay Inslee’s executive order that private career schools close through at least April 24, 2020.
