Marine Navigation Foundations
This 8-week course pairs the Royal Yachting Association's Day Skipper curriculum with further discipleship through the UofN for those who desire to progress to a ships officer. Training is offered, not only with UofN standards, but also with the standards set by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), American Sailing Association (ASA), International Shipping Federation (ISF), and international Standards for Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) Convention.
This course will lead to RYA Day Skipper or ASA theory examinations (depending on region) and cover most of the theory needed to gain a RYA/MCA Yachtmaster certificate of competency for a vessel up to 200 tons.
Along with the RYA or ASA certifications, all students will be issued the STCW approved ISF training workbook and complete a portion of it towards the Ratings Forming Part of a Navigational Watch certificate, which can be obtained after further sea-service.
Others locations to be announced.
