Piloting is the first of the navigational classes focusing on techniques for piloting a boat in coastal and inland conditions. There is a ton of great content and value here, and of all the courses in the USPS curriculum, many agree that Piloting is the one course you can’t miss. The course emphasizes planning and checking along with the use of GPS for determining position, and introduces digital charting along with traditional charting, compass and dead reckoning skills. Plotting, labeling, use of the compass, aids to navigation and a host of related topics are included in this all-new approach to coastal and inland piloting. The Student Kit includes the Student Manual, the Plotting and Labeling Guide and instructions for downloading, installing and using OpenCPN, a marine navigation program that is state-of-the-art and in wide use by commercial and recreational boating enthusiasts.
Materials Fee: $60
