GPS Instructor Quals/Cse

#1
Ladies n Gents,
Just found this site after recommendations from a student whos been on a GPS Instructor course for 2 weeks..... Had a good few chuckles at the comments on the MAPRIC Courses and Boris whom I work with...#

The reason for this post (and Im hopefully putting it in the right area??) is to push the GPS Instructor course to the Military Guys n Girls who frequent this site, The course is undersubscribed at the moment and we have been told people are put off by the DCI which states you must be MAPRIC/GPS User/ Unit Nav qual'd, this is being rewritten as the quals are not necessary just advantageous.

Its a 2 week course that gives you the spec qual to teach GPS Users on the in service GPS unit and qualify them on UNICOM / JPA if it works :)

If you are interested I can be contacted most weekdays on Mil 94231 4332

If poss could the mods make this sticky for a while???

Cheers Steve

I did the HH GPS Instructor Couse in 2003 having first completed MAPRIC and the 5 day GPS user course.

I would personally recommend doing MAPRIC first as it will help have a better understanding of Lat/Long, UTM, BNG and MGRS grids, which is covered on the 1st few days of GPS Instructor.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend to anyone who is interested.

Is the School still running the 5 day Unit Navigator course? If yes what are the dates?
