There is an incredible amount of knowledge and skill in our community – the vision for the SEA Online Institute is to be a repository of best practices and training topics to help our community help each other. Eventually we hope to offer courses to the public, including continuing education courses, professional certificate courses, and online learning for undergraduate, high school, and gap students.

If you want to contribute – please send ideas for new courses to the marine department, and if you enjoy recording training videos yourself, please follow the following guidance:

  • Remember that you don’t have to be perfect
  • Record on your phone horizontally when possible
  • Ensure clear audio by doing a test recording before diving into the training session
  • When complete, send the video/audio file to the marine department for editing and posting

Here is a 40 minute video, made by Captain Chris Nolan on the ROLES OF CREW AND STUDENTS: Program Progression.

Here is a link to Chris’s training website: PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR TRAINING. There you will find a number of videos and additional content to help you refresh or learn navigational topics. *** Special for SEA Crew only (Please do not share this), if you click on a course and add the coupon code YODA, you can gain access to the course content at no cost.
