In Canada, the CPS courses cover basic charting, plotting and bearings etc along with all the basic safety and practices including the buoyage systems. Essential when heading out on a coastal passage.
I'm sure there are ASA courses too, I just thought that USPS might be less expensive and maybe more available.. but not really sure about that.
In any event I'd feel better about the OP's odds for success with any one of those courses under his/her belt....
