FREE Basic SailTrim Sailing Course

If you like that we made this course for free, LIKE us over there —->

The NauticEd FREE Basic Sail Trim online sailing course is now available as a regular course – still FREE. We did this for a few reasons.

(1) We wanted to incorporate the valuable information into the more advanced Sail Trim course as a requirement. So rather than just repeat the information we just wrote this piece of code:

IF FREE Basic SailTrim Course = passed
AND IF Sail Trim Course = passed
THEN Add Sail Trim knowledge to Certificate AND Resume.

But we also wanted to not penalize our older students so we added this:

IF Student = Old Student
AND IF Old Student passed SailTrim prior to Oct 5th, 2015
THEN Add Sail Trim knowledge to Certificate AND Resume.

(2) We wanted new students to gain a real appreciation for how awesome our in-house eLearning Software is and experience it first-hand prior to investing in other courses and gain partial credit for the course.

(3) We also wanted this course to appear on your free NauticEd iPad App in your curriculum to give you something to play with in the doctor’s office or stuck on an airplane. If you have an iOS device and register for this free course, it will show up automatically on your free NauticEd Course and Testing App

So now, you can take the FREE Basic Sail Trim course (for free of course) and get credit towards your overall sail trim knowledge and sailing resume.

Your NauticEd Sailing resume is accepted by yacht charter companies worldwide.
