Nano Forums

Nano-Forums represent a huge investment in eLearning technology. On each page of each course you will see “SeaTalks”. This is where you ask and answer questions about content on that specific page. If you’re slighyl confused about something – ask a question to the community there. If you know the answer to a question answer it. Got a comment – make it. You get Social contributor points and work towards your expert Contributor Status each time you post and if your answer is liked by many you earn even more points.

Return Anytime You Desire:

After you’ve registered for any NauticEd course or course, please remember you can return as many times as you like to review and re-review the course and then take the test as many times as you like. Often, we add new functionality and information to a course and you get the benefit of this for all time for FREE.

Fill out your profile:

You’ll see this at the top right. Your fully accredited NauticEd Sailing Certification and Resume reflects your educational accomplishments with NauticEd, your boating experience and certifications with other certifying bodies and schools. Please ensure you fill out your profile to 100% so that your downloadable certificate accurately reflects your name and other information. Privacy notice – we don’t share your information with any third party.

Start Adding your Past Experience

Fill out your sailing experience history in the Sailor’s Logbook under the Logbook Marco Button. This reflects in your FREE sailing resume and certification and helps you build levels within your NauticEd Sailing Certification. More on this tomorrow.

Sign in Information:

You can always change your sign in information under your profile tab when you sign in. If you forget your password there is a handy forgot password tool on the signin page.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy your NauticEd experience. Our mission is to provide you with affordable, accessible and entertaining boating education so that you continuously enjoy your sailing experiences.
