    I think it has been dropped from the curriculum at the naval academy
    (actually they teach it but only using computers to do the sight
    reduction) however any officer who is going to fill the navigator billet
    on a ship has to take a course in celestial prior to assuming that job.
    The Quartermasters (the enlisted men who actually navigate the ship) are
    also still trained in celestial navigation.

    Is it true that CN has been dropped from naval academy and coast guard
    navigator training?  Just interested in the historical phenomenon.
