CPS-ECP is launching an exciting new webinar series for people who want to brush up on their boating skills, or explore a new interest. CPS-ECP volunteers have been developing this collection of informative webinars and will be bringing them to your living room, cottage, boat or office by offering them online.
Webinars are not new to CPS-ECP; over the years many Squadrons have developed their own successful webinars to satisfy a local need. They are now offering some of these as monthly webinars at 8pm Eastern Time for everyone to enjoy. They will cover subjects such as Automatic Identification System, Environment, Weather, Paddling and traditional subjects like Tides, Charting and Celestial Navigation.
Each webinar will be presented by experienced boaters for an hour with time for you ask your questions. The cost is $30 for non-members and $25.50 for members. Each attendee will also receive an ePub copy of the seminar booklet.
Here’s the schedule:
