ASA & StarPath Join Forces
to present a series of courses
By special arrangement because of the “One fathom social distancing” plan, David Burch of Starpath.com is making his ASA-approved interactive online courses (105 Coastal Navigation, 107 Celestial Navigation, 119 Weather, 120 Radar) temporarily available to ASA Affiliates to provide to their students.
Why take these courses?
