Thx Gord,
the class 6 file is good for those who intent to learn the basics.

Recently I posted a query to the FSM (Federal State of Micronesia) seminar asking how the mariners there are aware of the STCW amendments in regard of ECDIS training and ECDIS carriage requirement. What shall I say, I don't even get one reply.

So hopefully the people who intent to sail the Pacific and are not native are more educated when having studied your provided files.

I will check which information I can use for my work too.

I used that course material as the basis for a Class 6 restricted course I tutored in Tonga 2008 and subsequently used the outboard module to run a separate course for locals and cruisers. Excellent material with very few "tweaks" needed. Mainly addressing the local population for commercial tickets but equally applicable to cruisers as well. (Thanks to the cruisers who helped out with the chart work section, 43 students and only 2 tutors!!)

Positively, socially deviant.
