Compass Adjuster training - 1


To be eligible for a Compass Adjuster's licence, as well as passing the AMSA approved course, an applicant must show proof that he/she has assisted in at least 12 ships' compass adjustments under the instruction of a licensed adjuster.

These are some photos I took during several of those 12 adjustments, under Ken's instruction.
