The ASA 105, Coastal Navigation workshop offers advanced chart navigation instruction and prepares students to successfully complete the certification exam. Areas of study include chart reading, tidal current determination, dead reckoning, position fixes, running fixes, danger bearings, set and drift problems, and more. The class is intended to supplement the text rather than replace it, so plan on studying before the class begins.
Students are provided with an ASA Coastal Navigation Kit which includes a textbook with problem sets, DVD study guide, and a practice chart. The course is 6 evenings in duration, 3 evenings per week for 2 weeks. You will receive five evenings of classroom lecture and study with testing on the sixth evening. Please bring your navigation tools: divider, parallel or sliding rulers, white eraser, and magnifying glass or reading glasses.
