AUXACN (AuxNav)

AUXACN - Auxiliary Coastal Navigation

AUXACN, the Auxiliary Navigation Specialty course, prepares a member to become a genuine asset to the Flotilla's operations activities. The AUXACN course covers coastal navigation and embraces two basic concepts - location and direction - and three basic disciplines - dead reckoning, piloting and electronic navigation.

You can achieve success as an AUXACN Specialist by passing a two part closed book, proctored examination with a score of 75% or better. The first half, Part A, covers the theory; the second half, Part B, requires actual chart work to demonstrate a firm grasp of the material.
