Course content

For 200 years, cadets at the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy have been trained to navigate Navy vessels. This training has had various names such as "Navigation", "Navigation Instruction", "Seamanship, Maritime Wartime History and Sea Tactics", "Practical Education", "Seamanship and Manoeuvring" (Kvam 1967). After 1967, "Practical Navigation" is the most commonly used name.  To show that "Practical Navigation" is the Navy's way of training "Military Navigation", the name "Military Practical Navigation" (MPN) was introduced in 2016. MPN is training for navigating the Navy's vessels in military navigation.

The purpose of military practical navigation is to shape and adapt cadets to the Navy's style of practical navigation on board. Furthermore, the purpose of the course is to transform the theory received in other courses into practical experience through demonstration and exercises on board the school vessels and in the navigation simulator. The course brings cadets up to the level of independent navigator, and means that graduate marine officers can assume the role of watch commander’s assistant underway. The course provides the basis for starting as a watch commander under training on board.

Definition of military practical navigation:

  • Kompetansesenteret i Navigasjon (NavKomp = The Centre for Navigation Excellence) defines military navigation in the SNP-500 (Navkomp 2018). The definition of military navigation is:
  • «A vessel's ability to be able to perform operations up to the level of the vessel’s performance specifications for the areas it is intended to operate."
  • Military navigation thus deals with effective and tactical navigation in all conditions, in a challenging operating area to achieve the objective. The definition of effective navigation is to:
  • "Utilise the vessel's available systems and speed potential for navigating the vessel safely according to the objective of the voyage."
  • The definition of tactical navigation is to:
  • "Utilise the waters and the vessel's potential to achieve a tactical advantage over the enemy."
  • Military navigation is unique and differs in many ways from civil navigation. There is a high degree of complexity while being a critical part of the vessel's operation. Military vessels must relate to the various elements of Navigation Warfare (NAVWAR).

Working and learning activities

Educational platform

In military practical navigation, we follow the educational platform:

  • Theory - Simulator - Practical experience on board

Theories, methods or techniques surrounding a subject area arise in the classroom, in the simulator and on board. In the simulator, the teacher demonstrates the method before the cadets explore and test it in practice under supervision. The last segment of the educational platform takes place aboard the school vessels. The method cadets have learned in the simulator will be the training goal for a practical experience voyage aboard Kvarven and Nordnes under supervision. 

The voyage is divided into 4 phases

Previously, practical experience voyages aboard the school vessels covered the entire breadth of curriculum. Training goals differed little from the first evening voyage to the last time out. Training on each voyage took advantage of every opportunity that emerged underway.  Today, the MPN voyage is divided into four phases, which are repeated from leg to leg of the voyage. The division focuses on sub-goals and increases progression by building upon new sub-goals in the four phases.

  • The four phases are built around making a turn. 
  • The first phase is preparation for what is to be done before starting a turn. The planning forms the basis for good navigation. Factors such as selecting reference objects to turn towards identify it visually so that the navigator can be sure this is the correct object. Other factors are the next course and checking this with the pelorus stand, as well as finding and identifying the reference object. Before starting a turn, it is important to identify the hazards on the next course and what will make a clear swing.
  • The turn phase consists of implementing the turn and following this up. Is the turn in the correct location? (check with watch and log) and what is going on out the window in order to be able to follow up the turn. Coming out of the turn near the passage plan objective is the desired outcome. 
  • During the control phase, the navigator checks if the vessel is on the correct heading towards the intended reference object, on the intended course. Is the vessel on the line of course or is it starboard or port of it? The navigator corrects and follows up on hazards along the course by finding and using aids that clear the vessel of any obstacles. 
  • The fourth and final phase is the transit phase. The length of the course and the vessel's speed determine whether this is a short or long phase in duration. Regardless of length, the transit phase includes the navigator having to keep track of the current course hazards as well as determining drift and countering this. The position is checked and updated by utilising the traditional positioning and correction principles. In high-speed craft navigation, it is important to get ahead of the plan, and the transit phase is actively used to prepare, familiarise oneself with and review the upcoming plan with one’s navigation team.
  • Assessment of traffic conditions and observance of the rules of the road at sea are present in all phases.

Practical organisation

  • MPN runs over the last five semesters
  • The MPN course is divided into six practical experience exercises: the Grimstadfjord exercise, the Blindleia exercise, the Stadt exercise, the Ryfylke exercise, the Troms exercise and the MPN 6 exercise aboard the school vessels Kvarven and Nordnes.
  • MPN is divided into two training classes per week in the navigation simulator according to the semester schedule. The cadets are divided into two groups where only one group is in the navigation simulator at a time.
  • Simulator exercises 1 to 7 in semester 3. The focus is on ECDIS, ship handling (helm procedures), planning inland waterway passages, teamwork between assistant (chart reader) and navigator and simple optical navigation principles such as heading and positioning, specialisation in using the pelorus stand and bow, control methods: heading, passing the half point and positioning methods cross bearings and four point bearings as well as using a watch and maintained speed. A check of the cadet’s proper use of the simulator is mandatory. There is a progression from exercise 1 to exercise 7.
  • The three semester 3 evening voyages are divided among the semester where the cadet is tested on the training goals from the simulator exercises. Each cadet sails his/her own plans along the same fairways in the Bergen South or Bergen North areas.
  • The semester 3 weekend voyage comes towards the end of the semester, where the aim is to reinforce the training objectives within optical navigation and prepare the cadet for the exam.
  • Simulator exercises 1 to 7 in semester 4. The focus is only on the use of radar and a stopwatch as navigation aids for the navigator. Visibility is 100 m, and the cadet must learn to sail in all the different radar presentation modes (Relative, True, North Up, Course Up and Head Up). There is a progression from exercise 1 to exercise 7.
  • The three semester 4 evening voyages are divided among the semester where the cadet is tested on the training goals from the simulator exercises. Each cadet sails his/her own plans along the same fairways in the Bergen South or Bergen North areas. On Kvarven and Nordnes, the navigator’s view is physically blocked by curtains.
  • The semester 4 weekend voyage comes towards the end of the semester, where the aim is to reinforce the training goals within radar navigation and prepare the cadet for the exam.
  • The one-week Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA) and AIS courses in the simulator in semester 4 come just before Easter. In these, the cadet gains knowledge about and practice using the ARPA functions on the radar to avoid collisions with other vessels. Combined with the Ryfylke exercise.
  •  Simulator exercises 1 to 7 in semester 5. The focus is on night-time optical navigation with the use of lanterns and sector lights as well as flashing to clear all hazards. The radar is available for support. There is a progression from exercise 1 to exercise 7.
  •  The three semester 5 evening voyages are divided among the semester where the cadet is tested on the training goals from the simulator exercises. Each cadet sails his/her own plans along the same fairways in the Bergen South or Bergen North areas.
  • The semester 5 weekend voyage comes towards the end of the semester, where the aim is to reinforce the training objectives within optical navigation day and night to prepare the cadet for the exam.
  • The two semester 6 evening voyages are divided among the semester where the cadet is tested on GPS as an aid in fully utilising ECDIS with all the available sensors. Autopilot and track control will be taught. Each cadet sails his/her own plans along the same fairways in the Bergen South or Bergen North areas.
  • The semester 6 weekend voyage comes in the last half of the semester and is the last exercise in MPN. The exercise extends over the entire weekend. The purpose is for cadets to train in the roles of watch commander, captain and division commander on board Kvarven and Nordnes. The exercise consists of a CET/FIT phase and a free-play phase.
  • MPN has a independent-study programme in accordance with the teaching/training plan with exercises in the navigation simulator and CBT modules.
  • The Grimstadfjord exercise is completed in semester 2. The purpose of the exercise is to introduce the cadets to their newly chosen profession. The cadets will get to know the NAVKOMP staff, the simulator, the school vessels and go on a guided tour of UVB, a Skjold-class corvette, a mine countermeasures vessel and a frigate quayside at Haakonsvern. The focus is on safety, seamanship, becoming acquainted with ECDIS and simple navigation principles. 
  • The Blindleia exercise is completed as the practical experience part of the ECDIS assistant course in semester 2. The cadets are divided into 2 groups where each group completes the ECDIS assistant course and sails in the Blindleia exercise the week after. The purpose of Blindleia is to practice using ECDIS and the assistant's role in the bridge team. The navigator and assistant train to master the simple optical principles. The voyage goes from Bergen to the Oslo Fjord via Blindleia with half the class, and returns with the second half the week after. 
  • The Stadt exercise is carried out early in semester 3 and extends over two weeks. The cadets are divided into three groups with one group on board at a time. The duration on board is four days. The purpose of the exercise is to review the knowledge and skills learned in semester 2. After review, the exercise builds upon the optical principles that use the pelorus stand and the bow as the primary orientation in the fairway. The cadets sail in the fairways between Bergen and Stadt. The CRM course runs simultaneously and is run for the groups that are not on board. 
  • The Ryfylke exercise is completed before Easter in semester 4 and runs over two weeks. The cadets are divided into three groups with one group on board at a time. The duration on board is four days. The purpose of the exercise is to train extensively using the radar in navigation and to avoid collisions. The cadet sails in the good radar fairways in the Ryfylke area stationed at night in Stavanger.
  •  The Troms navigation exercise in semester 5 runs over five days and comes at the beginning of the branch semester. The purpose of the exercise is for the cadet to perform independently and maintain safe navigation by him or herself through practising a structured and methodical work approach. The cadet navigates primarily optically, but has the radar as support when needed. Half the class sails with SOA at 24 knots in the fairway between Bergen and Tromsø. The other half sails on the return voyage.
  • Navigation Systems 1 should complete radar theory early in semester 4.
  • Military Navigation 2 should teach relative course and speed early in semester 4.
  • MPN must be coordinated with the school vessels Kvarven and Nordnes, Navkomp and the simulator office at Navkomp for the following courses: 5 Fundamentals of Naval Power, 6 Military Problem Solving, Military Watchkeeping and Vessel Control, Military Navigation 1, 2 and 3, Navigation Systems 1 and 2, Operation and Maintenance of Navy Vessels, the ECDIS assistant course, ARPA course, AIS course and the CRM course.
  • Part of MPN is secondment on board an upcoming service location or vessel type to accommodate the cadet with his/her service after graduation.

Progression in a MPN exercise:

Kompetansesenteret i Navigasjon follows the same progression for MPN exercises, both for simulator sailing as well as on board the school vessels for evening voyages, weekend voyages or navigation exercises.
The cadets receive an exercise order with details of the passage. The cadet prepares a navigation plan for the passage and presents it to his/her supervisor the day before departure. The cadet adjusts his/her plan after the presentation.
Prior to departure, the navigator on duty holds a detailed navigation briefing for fellow cadets, crew and Captain/supervisor. The cadet conducts his/her passage on board under supervision in the role of navigator. Following the passage, the supervisor gives the cadet instruction on positive aspects of the passage as well as areas with potential for improvement that the cadet is to focus on in upcoming passages. After the voyage, cadets and the supervisor go through a summary of the learning objectives quayside. Each cadet presents his/her experience of the voyage’s training goals focusing on what fellow cadets and the supervisor can learn from the cadet's experiences.

Complexity in MPN:

There are a number of technical navigational and human factors that navigators must relate to. The knowledge of and skills in using chart fundamentals, the sensors, system, helmsman/autopilot and the various control modes combined with the interpersonal conditions while managing the resources on the bridge make it a complicated work situation. Therefore, MPN progression gradually builds up technical navigational and human factors through choosing sub-goals and support from theoretical subjects. The first control mode is Optical and covers the basic principles. Afterwards, MPN focuses on the radar control mode. The last mode is again Optical mode with radar support.

Working methods

  • Classroom instruction: There is a total of 15 weeks of instruction in the course per semester. The class is divided into two groups. Each group has four hours of simulator training every two weeks.
  • The class will be divided into six sailing groups (with 24 students). In semesters 3 and 4, the sailing groups 2-1, 2-2 and 2-3 belong to Group A. Sailing groups 2-4, 2-5 and 2-6 belong to Group B. Similarly, in semester 5, the sailing groups 3-1, 3-2 and 3-3 belong to Group A. Sailing groups 3-4, 3-5 and 3-6 belong to Group B.
  • The cadets are divided into vessel squadron-related groups in the last semester. The respective squadrons assist their cadet group.  UVB squadron assists cadet group UVB, etc.
  • Supervision: The cadets are under continuous supervision during simulator training and vessel sailing.
  • Each cadet will complete and pass a minimum of three evening voyages and one weekend voyage on board the school vessels per semester, but only two evening sailings in semester 6. Simulator sailing training will be carried out if a voyage with a school vessel is cancelled. Cadets receive feedback after completing their passage as a navigator using the MPN feedback form.
  • 100% attendance is required for evening, weekend and week-long voyages. Any absence will result in not passing the course. If the cadet falls ill, he or she shall retake the voyage in consultation with the course instructor. The voyage can then be taken as independent training, without a supervisor present in the simulator.
  • The cadets shall maintain the role of navigator on duty on board the school vessels and shall as a minimum:
    • Maintain contact with the Captain in accordance with "Orders for evening and weekend voyages" on It’s Learning.
    • Divide the legs of the voyage internally among the sailing group.
    • Prepare a navigation briefing for the Captain.
    • Coordinate transport to and from SHH.
    • Act in accordance with orders from the First Cadet if one is appointed.
  • The First Cadet can be singled out on weekend voyages and navigation exercises and shall as a minimum attend to:
    • A berthing plan
    • A bunkering plan
    • A catering plan
    • A voyage plan when ordered.
    • Maintaining a dialogue with the Exercise Commander
    • Issuing own voyage orders when ordered.
    • Maintaining a dialogue with the Exercise Commander while conducting the voyage in case any plan adjustments are necessary.
