Nautic Ed provides a challenging curriculum with an incremental progression that is very well suited to a beginner/Intermediate sailor. I have taken many on line courses and it is disheartening when the testing is not challenging. Nautical-Ed's open book approach engages the student, reinforces the chapter content by providing an opportunity for critical thinking as well as informational recall.

The animated illustrations and diagrams were great to help me understand the concepts presented. Reading through all the rules was pretty dry, but the subsequent discussions and animated illustrations made it real and easy to digest.

Very well done, good presentation and systematic approach to content. Wasn’t the painfully boring safety course I generally expect.
I am a retired Superintendent of Schools and currently provide online professional development for the principals in the province of Ontario. Consequently, the NauticEd program has been of considerable interest on a variety of levels. Your platform is exceptional.
