Starpath Navigation

I am working in Afghanistan and would like to take some on-line classes while I am here. Has anyone taken classes from Starpath Navigation and how would you rate them? Are their certifications universally recognized?

Greetings, and WELCOME aboard Jim.

As far as I know, the Starpath course completion certificate carries no “official” status, but may be accepted as "proof of competence" by some (many) bareboat charter operators.
FWIW, they are recognized by the International Sailing Schools Association (ISSA).

Hello and Thank You

Gord,

I appreciate the warm reception and your timely reply. I am land locked here but my heart is still with the sea. If my plans work out, after a couple of years over here I can save enough money for my wife and I to enjoy a life of cruising. We are planning to spend most of our time in the Caribbean.

Thanks Again,
Jim
