Intermediate Navigation Course attendee

We welcome our newest member, Lieutenant Wan Mohammad Firdaus bin Wan Ghazali RMN, who will be attending the next Intermediate Navigation Course which will be conducted at the School of Navigation and Warfare at HMAS Watson, preceded by a one-week familiarisation course at the Defence International Training Centre at Laverton.

The course is aimed at developing the navigation skills of Maritime Warfare Officers to the level where they can take responsibility for the safe navigation, under the direction of the CO of a Submarine, Minor War Vessel, Tender or Support Craft in company, by day or night, with some minor degradation of the platform.

In the accompanying photo, we see Commander Douglas Griffiths RAN, Australian Assistant Defence Adviser, presenting Lieutenant Wan Mohammad Firdaus bin Wan Ghazali with his M-ADAA member’s coin.
