Radar Masterclass

  • Fully online self paced course teaches you step by step all the skills and technical knowledge the operator of a small craft (less than 24m) radar needs to know.

  • Covers more than the traditional 'pulsed 'radar courses, with a detailed look at the benefits and limitations of cutting edge Broadband Radar too.Learn how to systematically observe targets, plot, and resolve a targets relative motion into true motion, with step by step lessons on each specific element, this is an area many students struggle with in the classroom!

I have been teaching radar in both a classroom and onboard environment for over 15 years, and I provide all the support too, and aim to respond within the hour.

Hello there!

I've been boating since I was 9, when I first ventured out into a bumpy Lune River in the UK with my dad on our 30 foot ketch, we had some fantastic adventures! Now for the last 15 years I have been teaching yachtmasters and maintaining my own small fleet of sailing and motor yachts. I created MECO Training to help those who would like to learn more about onboard systems, as I find many newly qualified skippers and boat owners find this area the biggest challenge. In conjunction with developing the courses I provide the support personally, it's mostly just me, a large mug of coffee, a laptop, and a crazy frog in the background! I hope you enjoy the courses, and please do get in touch if you have any questions, I'm here to help.

Best wishes

Dave Punch
