NOTE: NOAA plans on stopping the printing of the lithograph charts in April 2014. The training charts should be available as a print on demand chart but I have been unable to determine if training chart prices will be discounted.
As part of the change over, NOAA is making available their charts as a free PDF download.
Nautical Training Charts are outdated nautical charts that are used for educational purposes. The charts are “frozen” with no updates made to the charts, this means that charting remains consistent from year to year so class material and test questions do not need to be changed every time the chart is updated or an ATON moved.
The charts are less expensive than the corresponding current charts. Some training charts have sections of Chart No. 1 printed on the reverse side.
