The study of weather is both fascinating and satisfying. The skills you will develop from this course will serve you for a lifetime. With practice, you will be able to make short term forecasts – challenge the professionals as to who better predicts the weather in your local area.
Covers basic weather knowledge, atmosphere, clouds, pressure, wind, temperature, moisture, stability and instability, air masses, frontal weather, precipitation, fog, general circulation, tropical hurricanes, wave theory and forecasting.

Do you know what to do if a boat on fire calls you for help? Can you deal with emergencies on your own boat?
