The Canadian Power and Sail Squadron is changing the way it is delivering some of its courses. I am personally taking on a part of this task. Coming up in a couple of weeks (Jan 18) we will be offering Boating 2 ( Beyond PCOC) This is a great course to introduce you to a host of things that every boater should know.
We will be running this course as a distance education hybrid Course. They way it will work is that most of the actual teaching/learning will be done by you (the student) online or by reading, at a time convenient to you. There will be some self administered quizzes, so you can make sure you are on track. Once a week there will be a gathering (on line, via computer, ipad/iphone, or come by my house and have a coffee) There will be a couple of for sure face to face meetings for the topics that require it (knots and Charts) Currently I only have as students myself, and possibly Gary Steves. I’m looking for two or three more so that we can make this a viable course offering.
If you are interested at all give me a call 643-0799 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to http://boatingcourses.ca and read the description there. This is where you will need to go to register. When you register the National Office will mail your course materials to you.
I hate to cancel courses, so if you are interested you will need to act in the next few days.
Our online meetings will be thursday evening beginning the 18th at 1900 for about an hour.
