    Software License Agreement

    • This agreement is between you and Mariners Learning System™ and covers the purchase, access, and use of the Mariners Learning System™ Online Courses.
    • Due to the proprietary nature of these materials once the product has been activated or course begun there are no returns or refunds allowed. (See Product Return Policy below for additional details)
    • The access to the software is limited to One Person (1) per access key or password and may not be used at one location while simultaneously used at another.
    • All Mariners Learning System (MLS) online courses expire One Year (12 months) after the date the course is activated.
    • Upon activation, students are agreeing that they have an up-to-date desktop or laptop with a working camera and microphone. Additionally, students have access to a strong Internet connection and the ability to download testing software through their MLS account. These are mandatory for recorded online courses and testing. Refunds will not be issued if these cannot be met, as information has been provided prior to purchase stating these requirements.
    • In the event a student requires more time to complete their course, upon request, MLS will reset the course and give an additional One Year (12 months) access for a fee of $95.00. The new expiration date will be One Year (12 months) from the course reset date. This Course Extension option is only available to students that have not signed up for or taken any part of their final proctored exam.
    • This Software is protected by both United States and International copyright law. Therefore, you must treat this license and access to software just like a book, with the following exceptions: you agree, pursuant to the license, not rent or lease the software in any way or form. You may not copy or reproduce the software or electronic files in any manner.
    • This license is not for sale. Title and copyright of the software, accompanying Documentation and any access to the software remain with Mariners Learning System™.

Mariners Learning System™ will neither be liable for loss of data, lost profits, cost of cover or other special, incidental, consequential or indirect damages arising from the use of the Software or accompanying documentation, however caused and on any theory of liability.

    • Online courses expire one year after a student activates their online student classroom.

    Product Return Policy

    Mariners Learning System™ has very rarely ever had an issue of product returns. Our online tours and product reviews do a thorough job of presenting the content and quality of our products. However, it is corporate policy that we establish and publish a written procedure which will be followed:

    • A defective product of any type would be replaced at no expense to the customer.
    • Products, other than our online courses or software, can be returned within 10 business days of the product ship date, provided that they are in the "original packaging and resalable condition." All returned products are subject to a 15% restocking and shipping fees.
    • Prior to returning any product you are required to contact Mariners Learning System to request a Return Authorization Number (RA). If a RA has NOT been issued returns will NOT be accepted by our shipping and receiving department and the package will be returned to the customer at their expense.
    • Individual online courses, software products, and site licenses purchased can be returned within 10 business days of the purchase date PRIOR to course activation or the beginning of the course. Due to the proprietary nature of these materials, once the product has been activated or course begun, there are NO returns or refunds allowed, regardless of purchase date.


    • If a customer cancels an order prior to the product being shipped a FULL credit will be issued to your account.
    • For a refund request to be processed, confirmation that an RA number has been issued and that the returned product(s) have been received in "original packaging and resalable condition" is required. If the product(s) are returned without an RA authorization number or are not in the "original packaging and resalable condition" a refund WILL NOT be issued and the product will be returned to the customer at their expense.
    • Refunds will be posted minus restocking and shipping fees within 2 business days of MLS confirming that the above conditions have been met.
    • If an online course or software is purchased at a boat show or other special event, the terms and conditions defined in the signed registration agreement supersede the above refund policy.
    • The American Hero Fund discount is only available at the time of purchase. It cannot be retroactively applied after a purchase.
