Ready to ride the waves this summer down the shore or on the Chesapeake, or perhaps even on the upper Schuylkill River? This beginner boating course offers comprehensive instruction to obtain a Boating Safety Education Certificate recognized in multiple states. Taught by a US Coast Guard Auxiliary certified instructor, it covers topics like Boating Law, Safety Equipment, Navigation, Emergencies, Trailering, Sports, and more. Completion of the course often leads to insurance discounts from many boat insurance companies. Additionally, three hands-on classes are provided for practical skills such as VHF radio use, knots, and marine chart navigation. Recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard and approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), this class grants certification accepted PA, NJ, MD, DE, and others. Students will be prepared to take the certification test at the last class. The course fee includes a book and all materials. There is an additional $10 fee payable to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission for the certificate.
