LAPWARE is the most complete license advancement program for studying,
preparing and testing for the United States Coast Guard (USCG)
credential exam questions. LAPWARE was developed by Richard M.
Plant and Captain Joseph S. Murphy, II.
The files on this server are 100% Windows based encrypted files and eBooks.
To view ANY of these files you must download and install the "FREE" Copy Safe PDF Reader
encrypted documents and eBooks from being copying, printed, screen
captured or distributed thus protecting the author’s work. Any files can
be viewed from cache but it is recommended that they be SAVED AS
and stored in a folder on your computer for faster viewing.
For other than SAMPLE EXCERPT files, Internet Access is required to verify
authorization of the user being allowed to view the file. The file is
linked to your Computer ID so that distribution to another computer is
not permitted and the file cannot be viewed. However full versions of
most eBooks can be purchased for offline use using our new APM solution.
New users do have free access to the SAMPLE EXCERPT folder to download
excerpt files of eBooks being sold but the CopySafe PDF Reader must be downloaded
and installed in order to view the files. This will aid the user in
learning how the "FREE" PDF reader works prior to purchasing any eBooks.
Since the files are encrypted for protection purposes no other PDF
reader can view these files.
These Study Aids are initially aimed at Merchant Mariners in the United
States who are sitting for their U.S. Coast Guard credential exam. Other
mariners around the world might find them beneficial as well. Presently
we have Stability, Rules of the Road in two versions. We do plan on
developing other eBooks such as Engineering license exams questions and
illustration books as well as copies of the Code of Federal Regulations
(33, 46 and 49 CFRs) which will have to be generated yearly based upon
regulatory changes. Other study aids will also be developed based upon
user feedback and the need as determined.
Access to LAPWARE for Deck mariners is found at www.lapware.org. Access
to LAPWARE for Engine mariners is found at www.lapwareengine.org.
Lapware stands for License Advancement Program software and is presently
used by all U.S. State and Federal maritime academies, most maritime
labor training facilities, other smaller schools and community colleges
and by hundreds of individual mariners yearly. LAPWARE is based upon the
latest USCG NMC question database. The addition of this server is simply
a means of allowing the provision of additional manuals for study for
the credential exam or practical usage while at sea.
The CopySafe PDF Reader has been found to be
the most secure means of protecting files from copying,
screen capturing, printing and distribution.
