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.
Your ASA Coastal Navigation Study Kit, which includes a textbook with problem sets, DVD study guide, and a practice chart, are included with the purchase of your course and will be mailed to you. If you wish to pick up your study materials in person or sign up less than a week from the first day of your course, please contact our office. Hands-on classroom instruction with your ASA certified instructor is intended to supplement the text rather than replace it. Advance study with your textbook and practice chart will enhance your success in this course.
The course is 6 evenings in duration, 3 evenings per week for 2 weeks. You will receive five evenings of classroom lecture and practice with testing on the sixth evening. Please bring your navigation tools: divider, parallel or sliding rulers, white eraser, and magnifying glass or reading glasses.
