Great overview

Great Training.

This course I would recommend to the people that actually use celestial navigation. This is not taught out at sea neither is it even a requirement to our navigational duties underway. Celestial navigation is best taught underway and not in a class room environment. This is more used for last, last resort as a tool for navigation plotting. The plotting sheets that were used, we do not use those at all. This was very informative if were to use this on a daily basis but unfortunately I do not. To Chief's work, good job and thank you for the training.

Nothing to report.

Good course. Helps establish the basics for follow on study.

When reviewing how to do the work by hand using the plotting sheet is not a true representation of what the work looks like on a chart. There needs to be more review of how to accomplish the same work using the Sight Reduction Tables and HO Pub 229 and the Rude Star Finder, not everyone is comfortable using those materials.

Good introduction to celestial navigation.

I think this course is good. It is also advanced
Brobro864 2018-04-25 11:59:38

I THINK THIS I A LOST ART THAT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO GET BACK UP TO SPEED

great course.

I thought the lesson was very well put together and easy to navigate through.

I have spent hundreds of dollars and untold hours on classes and materials in an attempt to learn how to use celestial navigation.I spend about six hours with your class and I finally have a grasp of the subject. I passed your quiz, however barely, so additional study is warranted along with many hours of practice.Thank you so much for the opportunity to take this course.Jim Thorpe

One of the best presentations of the important concepts of celestial navigation on the internet but as a practical guide to CN it falls short. As it acknowledges, in order to use the information you need an internet connection, difficult in the middle of the Atlantic.

Could use just a bit more explanation on the running fix and what is going on to advance lines for solar measurements and subsequent plotting.

Very intuitive and easy to follow. I went through it a couple times and was able to learn the theory and nomenclature of celestial.
reginaschiele 2018-01-02 01:41:28

it was great.
Muhd_Hadi 2017-12-31 21:31:12

very in depth study of the topic
fyaaziqbal 2017-12-25 07:13:27

it was fine ,just that some explanations werent up to standard and i couldnt understand
Killeck 2017-12-22 10:37:52

This course was very instructive and provided excellent examples of the use of the concepts.

Very interesting lesson

Chief Sheedy is the man! Promote to Senior Chief NOW!!!

This lesson brought me back to the basics of celestial navigation. The US Navy should implement this course onboard ships across the entire fleet. I strongly believe that Junior Quartermasters would benefit from a course like this.
Sloanchr 2017-09-13 14:57:45

Easy to understand and it only takes a few hours! BZ
Remi 111 nazari 2017-07-19 10:10:14

very easy to do and loved it
AlfredoV 2017-06-27 11:18:44

Great course, helped me understand the concept of celestial navigation more.

Very informative. cant wait to practice it more on merchant vessels.
robin1979 2017-06-16 06:12:41

Super, liked it a lot
bisriahmad 2017-06-12 08:54:30

I've learned a lot of useful techniques necessary for navigation.
timoore2014 2017-05-14 19:23:53

This was a great course, helped increase my knowledge of celestial navigation having very little instruction previously.

good
syaf_awi 2016-12-30 08:18:35

The questions made me questioned myself
pharrjs 2016-12-02 13:09:58

These lessons are good as a refresher for experienced Navigators and beginners. I highly recommend this course.

This course is very good if you already have a basic understanding of CELNAV an paper charts. However for my junior Sailors they will have many question and a lot of side teaching to get them through this course. My solution to this is have a basic CELNAV course for SUN RISE/SET, and strip form use for all categories ie gyro error moon rise/set. But overall very good course and will have all B450s(QM) take this course. Thanks
