John Abell, who took our ASA105 Coastal Navigation Course in Winter 2017, sent the following comments


I ordered Tom's ASA 105 DVD's, really enjoyed them, but realized the structure of the On-Line format would be the best build-up for taking and (hopefully) passing the exam by early Summer when I had hoped to enroll in ASA 106.  The On-Line format is a great option and the schedule worked-well for me. It was helpful to hear questions other students asked.   The course covered a great deal of information and the pace seemed reasonable. Tom designed really good word problems to highlight key navigation issues. I could see the value of the practice problems during the On-Line seminars, but best understood their value while doing practice problems to prep for the exam after the webinar ended.  I chose the Maryland School because I was impressed with the information on courses and sailing techniques on your web site.

Tom Tursi is a great instructor! His On-Line webinar lectures are well-organized, the information on coastal navigation is well-communicated and well-illustrated - great diagrams and use of diagrams to demonstrate application of navigation techniques. Tom fields student questions with thoughtful and convincing answers. He helps students understand how to think-through navigation problems.  The support staff too was excellent. Hat's off to Rita.
