Here is absolutely excellent training software released by the USCG. The intention of the authors of this course was to provide the candidates to the Navigation Specialist role with the extensive and thorough training, covering one of the critical mariner skills. The material of the course is arranged in two major parts, upon completion of which the trainees should be considered able to perform all navigation activities on a small craft with sufficient confidence and accuracy.

There are eleven sections, starting with the introduction and essentials of navigation, then the main navigator’s tools including compass, dead reckoning etc. The piloting occupies two following sections, while the rest of them are devoted to the tides and currents, e-navigation, radar plotting and other important areas. Note that there are several appendices providing additional information.

It is strongly recommended to go through the content of the course either on your own or, preferably with the instructor. Even if you are not going to sail in the United State waters, the materials contained in this training resource will be useful to you. Just make sure you follow it carefully and pay enough attention to details.
