Course Length: 8-12 Hours
A Combination of Hands-On, On-The-Water, Behind the Wheel & Challenge Test-out

Note: Enrollment closes 2 weeks before class
This course is for anyone who has taken a classroom boating course but needs experience to safely operate a small motorboat and improve their boathandling skills.

Students will be expected to study the course materials at home to challenge and pass a written exam covering equipment requirements, rules of the road, aids to navigation, preparation, environment regulations, safety and emergencies.

This course focuses on hands-on application of all powerboating skills, consequently it is NOT approved by the US Coast Guard or the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) as meeting requirements for a state boating safety education certificate.
