Non-Compliant Vessel Pursuit
The Non Compliant Vessel Pursuit (NCVP) courses are offered to U.S. Coast Guard personnel at designated Pursuit Stations and Cutters. The purpose of the NCVP courses are to prepare pursuit crews for the dangerous and difficult tasks associated with stopping non compliant vessels at sea. Graduates of the NCVP courses possess the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue and gain compliance of vessels in a safe and professional manner. During the five day courses, the majority of the training is performed hands on while underway. Students are evaluated verbally, and through performance based training evolutions.
