Students will gain a basic understanding of nautical charts and related terms. They will be taught how to plot position and course, how to use a compass and take bearings and they will be introduced to the Canadian Buoyage System. They will also be introduced to electronic aids to navigation such as radar and GPS.
We plan on offering this course in late February 2010. All interested Nunavut beneficiaries are encouraged to apply. NFTC will cover transportation to Iqaluit and accommodation for this course.
