Boater Info

Is a Classroom Course right for me?Boat Safe PWC Deer Sticker

Classes offer students the chance to interact with an experienced boater and learn in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. It's also a great way to learn specific local information and network with other boaters. 
  
Upon successfully passing (70% or better), boaters are issued a certificate of completion and a Boater Education Card application. The student is responsible for mailing in their application materials to the Marine Board.  Classroom courses vary in length and cost, depending on the course provider. 

 
Other course options include internet courses and equivalency exams.
