Getting Started Guide

We think you'll find our new, modernized and secure web site easy to use, whether from a PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Following are a few simple guidelines to help you get started,

GLCCSchool Web Site Navigation

You can navigate the site from either the top menu bar, from the highlighted tiles on the screen, or whichever you find most convenient at any point in time. Each tile contains a short description visible from the home page or other page you may be viewing. Simply click on that tile for more detail. By using these few simple clicks you can navigate through the entire GLCCSchool web site.

Webinar Broadcasts

All classes are interactive and presented live over the internet. Unless otherwise indicated, webinar sessions run between 60 and 90 minutes. Classes are very affordable. As a non-profit service to the Great Lakes boating community, our sponsoring organization, the Great Lakes Cruising Club, tries to keep registration costs as low as possible while covering presentation hosting and instructional costs.

Live to "live stream"? Can't make a live webinar? All webinars are recorded and are typically made available the day after the live presentation.  Recordings can be viewed as often as you like and at any time of the day or night. Recordings remain available for at last six to eight weeks after the class. Whether you're able to attend the live event or not, as a registered participant for a webinar you will receive a link to a recording of the class after the live event. Instructors are also accessible via email during this period to take your questions. 

Even if the live presentation has passed, for a limited time you may still register for the webinar to gain access to the recording. Just click "Recordings", select a webinar recording, and register.  And your Instructor will still be accessible via email to take your questions.

To browse available webinars and recordings just click the  "Open Classes" or "Recordings" buttons on the top menu bar, or alternately click the corresponding tiles featured in the home screen below, or click on any webinar featured in a tile on the home screen.
