This course is designed for anyone interested in improving their chart plotting skills and problem solving abilities. The course has a section on chart plotting basics and the use of plotting tools, and then begins to solve chart plotting problems at various license levels.
We will discuss all types of chart plotting problems found on U.S. Coast Guard exams, and we will solve sample exam problems at all levels from 100 Tons to Unlimited Tonnage.
New problems are solved and added regularly, and you can keep access to the course forever!
