The Center for Professional Mariner Development is pleased to announce that on-campus courses will resume immediately with the exception of Firefighting and Basic Training courses.

Beginning Friday, June 12, the State of Maine will allow adults who obtain a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to arrival in Maine to skip the current 14-day quarantine. Residents of New Hampshire and Vermont are exempt from testing and 14-day quarantine requirements when visiting Maine. Students who meet these requirements may attend in person classes.

CPMD will continue to follow all existing safety and COVID-19 prevention guidelines. When you are indoors and when you encounter another individual,a mask must be worn over your nose and mouth. You are not required to wear a mask while transiting between buildings outdoors and when you are able to maintain a six-foot distance from others. We encourage you to wash or sanitize your hands frequently throughout the day.
