    1. Sounds like a great course, wish I could attend…

      Wish I would have had more training like that when I was working as a deckhand on merchant marine jobs because I had fun talking with the mates and captains about the weather conditions but I never really understood enough about high and low pressure systems to understand what they were telling me.
