Why are there Charges for Some Seminars?
Most of the coursework ASPS offers is produced by the United States Power Squadron, now America's Boating Club. The organization's funds are derived from dues, the sale of educational material, testing, and data keeping for certificating. When we teach a course produced by America's Boating Club we are paying for the production and the right to use those materials. America's Boating Club is Non-profit and materials are written by volunteers. Annapolis Sail and Power does not raise funds for ASPS through our educational program. We just cover our costs.
