Course Description

Practical small-craft navigation (sail or power) starting from the basics and ending with all that is needed to navigate safely and efficiently on inland and coastal waters in all weather conditions.  For beginners and more experienced mariners alike. All materials are provided except plotting tools.

No prerequisites are required, we start from the basics. Many thousands of students have successfully learned navigation from these materials and gone on to bare boat chartering or day sailing or world cruising in their own boats.

Course Details

Includes a total paper course package, a complete electronic version of the entire course plus additional software resources, an electronic chart viewer and simulator as well as enrollment in the Starpath Online Coastal Navigation Course. Read More

With this combination you can choose the media that is most convenient to you at the time. Use the search engines and software resources from the computer, while you work through the lessons, assignments and quizzes in the interactive online classroom. And when you are away from the computer, study with the printed texts, and paper chart.

Most important, however, with this versatile package you can learn both traditional and electronic navigation at the same time — solve the practice problems in the traditional manner on a paper chart with standard plotting tools and also solve the problems electronically in an echart program using waypoints, bearing lines, and range rings.


Certification
