Jump Start, an America’s Boating Club, aka US Power Squadron, the program provides a framework for providing one-on-one training to a member or non-member student on the student's own boat. The student should be the owner of a new boat, or at least a boat new to them. The student should have some boating experience, but limited experience with a boat of the type for which the training will be conducted.
The content of the training is customized to fit the needs of the individual student. The goal is to help the new boat owner develop essential skills for the safe operation of their boat and to break through any barriers that may limit their boating enjoyment. Up to two hours of training can be scheduled. This provides a reasonable amount of time to teach a number of skills.
The Jump Start Program provides a personalized, high-quality training experience for the student. There is no charge for the program.
To sign up for the Jump Start program go to the United States Power Squadron, America’s Boating Club, District 32 Website: www.usps.org/localusps/sds-D32/ and sign up.
