Boating Safety Course

By On ·

When you know the boating laws and navigational rules of the road, you’ll have a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience on the water. Think about it. You will not have to worry what the different aids to navigation mean, or if you have the required safety equipment on board. Even if you have years of experience, it’s always a good idea to take a refresher course. Rules and laws apply to both federal and state are subject to change.

Boating season is in full swing, so there’s no better time than the present to sign up for a boating course. It’s a lot easier than you might think. Depending on your preferred learning style, you can either take a boating course in a classroom or online. Make sure that the course you take is approved by your state boating agency, by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), and recognized by the United States Coast Guard (USCG).


Online courses are ideal if you want to learn from the comfort of home. These providers have courses that are designed to meet the state-specific requirements of your state.
