Hello, I’m Mike Ferro,
I’ve been running shorebased courses under the RYA training scheme since shortly after it was established in its present form during the 1970s. Over that time I have seen where students on the courses can experience difficulties and developed teaching programmes to address these difiiculties for all the main RYA courses. These CDs contain over 2000 screen pages of pictures, diagrams, lights animations, quizzes, worked examples and navigation exercises covering all aspects of the day skipper and coastal skipper shorebased course syllabi (and much else besides), based on those I use for running the courses and supply to my students as an aid to study and revision.
Worked examples in the navigation sections are based on the Admiralty charts 1892 (Dover Strait) and and 2656 (English Channel) so access to these would be useful where students wish to work the associated navigational exercises
Each element of the course is supported by picture gallery sections which serve to illustrate and extend the subject, and handouts which summarize the work in hand and are supplied to my students in the form of paper copy.
Click here for full details of disc 1 (covers the day skipper syllabus).
Click here for full details of disc 2 (covers the more advanced elements to coastal skipper level).
The discs cost £14.40 each post free or the two together for £21.60.
