The PCOC makes sure you have immediate navigation and safety skills but it’s just the beginning of what you should know when you get on a boat. In this second course of our Boating Series, you are introduced to the art of navigation, anchoring, ropes, line, knots and what to expect when the boat is moving under power. This course also has a number of optional topics that will be taught depending on your interests, including towing, trailering and a check list for layup and launch.
This online course includes all lessons in video format available on a 24/7 basis (via Vimeo), a course manual covering all learning points including study questions, instructor-facilitated weekly online sessions and one-on-one (in-person or online support from a local CPS-ECP tutor).
The weekly online classes offer a review of lesson material, an opportunity for students to ask questions to the instructor and for the instructor to ask challenge questions to the students to ensure an understanding. The weekly online classes for this course take place on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM Atlantic Time. The in-person or online support sessions with the CPS-ECP tutor includes assistance with reading charts, plotting, knot tying, etc.
