"I have just completed the Celestial course (HO 249 method) and found it to be excellent and completely practical as to content. I appreciated the timely response to my correspondence work and the helpful support and guidance necessary to become proficient in Celestial navigation. I highly recommend this school's Celestial course."

"Having recently returned to my first professional interest in life, the sea, I have been busy refreshing, retrieving and amplifying knowledge and qualifications acquired over four decades ago. Mr. Hudson's Coastal and Celestial Navigation courses have made the process highly interesting, thorough and very satisfying."
