There is no pre-requisite course to attend, the only mandatory element is the examination, hence a course completion certificate will not be required.

This 4 day course leading to a celestial navigation exam will cover the following topics:
- Using celestial bodies to fix position
- Determining latitude by celestial means
- Determining the compass error by celestial means

Please note that, unlike the other Master modules, Celestial Navigation is only valid for 12 months, therefore students should be confident of sitting their Oral within the next 12 months before taking this exam.
