The USCG Auxiliary Navigation Specialty Course is divided into two distinct and separate, yet interdependent, parts. The first part, AUXNAV A, is the general knowledge, or theoretical, part. The second, AUXNAV B, is the practical, or application, part. The first involves almost no chart work; the second is totally chart work. The first part does involve plotting with maneuvering boards and serves the dual purpose of providing practice in the use of the boards as well as training in the use of polar coordinates to determine location. AUXNAV A is a prerequisite for AUXNAV B, and both must be successfully completed for a member to be designated a Navigation Specialist.
