This will allow you to take charge of the navigation of a ship over 500gross tons, a substantial vessel. You will begin by learning the theory, before familiarising yourself with all the navigational tools you’ll be required to use on a typical shipping detail. Learning how to read navigational charts, tidal diagrams, and make the correct decisions based on limited information. We will ready you for the final exam, after which you will be as ready as any seafaring veteran. To check eligibility please contact us.
