Modern Marine Navigation Online

Coast Guard Auxiliary and Boat/US
Release On-Line Navigation Course
Imagine a typical new boater. They excitedly buy a boat and dream of taking it to fun, maybe even exotic, places. But they soon realize that they don’t know how to get there, they don’t know how to navigate. They want to learn navigation skills, they may even know about the Coast Guard
Auxiliary, but they may not have time to attend classes.
Now we have a win-win opportunity to offer boaters a new world of boating opportunities, promote boating safety and open up a new source of revenue for flotillas.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary, in partnership with the Boat US Foundation, has launched a new educational program for boaters, an online, self-study course called Modern Marine Navigation. Boaters that enroll in this course will learn, using their own computers or tablets, in the comfort of
their own homes.
Auxiliary instruction to the boating public has been declining for several years. At the same time the use of online self-study instruction has been steadily increasing. Leveraging this trend, the Auxiliary has authored and developed a stimulating new interactive online course called
Modern Marine Navigation, with Web implementation and hosting by the Boat US Foundation.
This is the only navigation course offered anywhere that has been completely vetted by the US Coast Guard Navigation Center. It will be the gold standard of navigation courses. This course opens a new market to Auxiliary boating education and it offers a direct financial benefit to
Each person who enrolls in the course, using our Burlington Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla number* as a “promo code” on the Modern Marine Navigation course website, will receive a discount of over 10% off the purchase price.
The Modern Marine Navigation online interactive self-study course is now available by clicking this link http://cgaux.org/mmn or by going to the Boat US Foundation website. The course is priced at
$40.00. However, with a promo code (Burlington USCGAUX Flotilla # 0141502), the cost will be $36.00.
Recreational Boating Safety is the primary core mission of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Whether getting on the water with a boat or a personal watercraft, the Modern Marine Navigation Online Course can help boaters be safer and more knowledgeable. By promoting Modern Marine Navigation at every opportunity, USCG Aux help boaters who need education to make boating safer for everyone.
