New online: Modern Marine Navigation

New boaters who don’t have time to take a safe boating class or who live too far away from a Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla now have an online course tailored for their needs.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary, in partnership with the Boat US Foundation, is launching a new educational program for boaters, an on-line, self-study course called Modern Marine Navigation. Boaters who enroll in this course will learn, using their own computers or tablets, in the comfort of their own homes.
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 Auxiliary flotillas.
Each person who enrolls in the course, using a nearby 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. And for each of those enrollments, the Flotilla will receive a revenue share of $5.
The Modern Marine Navigation online interactive self-study course costs $39.99 and will be available on the Boat US Foundation website http://www.boatus.org/courses/ on or about March 1. However, with a promo code, the cost will be $34.99, and the flotilla you designate will receive $5.
