Part of Northwestern Michigan College, the Great Lakes Maritime Academy confers

Coast Guard exam for the following licenses:

Third Mate - Great Lakes or Oceans - Unlimited Tonnage

military schedule. This academic program is the United States Maritime
Administration, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Michigan Department of Education.
The Great Lakes Maritime Academy obtained a 225-foot former Navy submarine
surveillance ship
Persistent. The vessel is a Stalwart-class T-AGOS vessel (the class
vessel
Stalwart is owned by SUNY Maritime College).  The vessel’s new name is State
of Michigan
.

The school is  part of Northwestern Michigan College, a two year community college.
It is also a partner of Ferris State University. The school educates and trains students
for positions of leadership on Great Lakes, ocean-going ships and shore side
positions in the business world, with students gaining "hands-on" experience.
Graduates emerge with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and an
associate degree in maritime technology. Students, or cadets, who complete the
college program successfully qualify to take U.S. Coast Guard license exams.
That good looking dark-hulled ship huddled away like an ice goddess in the photo
above started her career off as the Stalwart Class Modified Tactical Auxiliary General
Ocean Surveillance Ship
USNS Persistent, shown above in her original livery.
In that capacity, she started her career off in a vastly different path than as a school
ship. She was deployed to collected acoustical data on submarines during the Cold
War.
Perhaps one of the reasons these small ships are liked by
