Take advanced courses and win valuable prizes!

The USPS Education Department urges all members to take one or all seven advanced grade courses to be eligible to win one of 19 valuable prizes.

“This is an excellent opportunity for all squadron members to have fun while gaining valuable information in seamanship, piloting, navigation, weather, marine electrical systems and engine maintenance,” said National Educational Officer Bob Sweet.

“Being eligible to win handheld VHF radios and GPS’, navigational software sets, barometers, multimeters or chart plotters isn’t bad either,” Sweet added.

Sweet reminds everyone that successful completion of advanced grade courses leads to reduced boat insurance premiums.

Everyone who takes and passes an advanced grade course between 1 July 2009 and 30 June 2010 will be entered to win! The drawing will be held and winners announced at the Fall Governing Board meeting in September 2010.
