The VI and Vancouver Chapter Education Watchkeepers, Brent Alley and Kit Griffin, are delighted to announce this online Zoom course which is open to all BCA members and non-members!

The Advanced Marine Radar seminar is for those who have taken Basic Marine Radar with Kevin Monahan and wish to learn about:

  • advanced techniques in collision avoidance
  • navigation using radar as an alternative to electronic charts in areas that do not have accurate electronic charts
  • managing interactions between radar and other electronic technologies such as AIS, GPS, digital compasses
  • causes and cures of radar overlay errors.

The Basic Marine Radar seminar is a pre-requisite for this course.

Course Format

Each two hour presentation will be followed by ½ hour of questions. There is no need to subscribe to Zoom, just register for Advanced Marine Radar and we’ll send a link to you a couple of days before the course.
