Safe Power Boat Handling
NASBLA/USCG approved, 2-day course includes a combination of on-the-water and classroom instruction. You can work alongside other students, or schedule a private course, to learn safe boat handling maneuvers and techniques. Whether you're learning from the beginning, a long time boater looking to gain a state certification, gaining experience for a job opportunity, or trying to reduce your boat insurance costs, this is the course for you!
Students can earn most states' boating certifications, such as the CA Boater Card or NJ Boating Safety Certificate. For more information about state certifications please contact us.
Investment: $300 (+ vessel insurance discount*)
NOTE: To keep costs down, all students are responsible for ordering their course materials directly from US Sailing (av. $30/student). Materials may take a week or more to be delivered so be sure to order your materials earlier rather than later! Materials are not included in the course cost.
*vessel insurance discounts depend on your vessel insurance company
