I love the intuitive way the courses have been created. The fact that the material is available to view again later is very useful as a refresher when it's been a while since the course was taken. The explanations on the test as to why you got an answer wrong is very helpful in correcting your understandings.

I was able to complete the Skipper Rank prior to chartering and the information I accumulated from the Nauticed courses was great. The 7 courses I have taken ALL were helpful, especially the Catamaran Sailing Confidence course.
