OEI Registration

Custom Safe Powerboat Handling


Hello students!

Your amazing employer has organized, and customized, this awesome power boating course just for you! So, make sure that you thank them for being so awesome and taking good care of you, their employees.

This course has a combination of classroom and on-the-water objectives. At the end, you will be required to take a comprehensive exam on the boating safety topics that we cover. It is highly recommended that you read through the book, supplemental materials and that you complete the review questions prior to the start of the course. Once you register for the course, you can collect your course materials from Tripp McCandlish. Students that successfully pass the course will receive a US Powerboating Safe Powerboat Handling Certification and a California Boater Card.

For your learning pleasure, we have combined the "state-approved certification course" with additional modules that are specific to your job. If you interested in learning more about the course, you can click on the links above (on-the-water edu -> state-approved/custom power boat training). As we get closer to the course, I will send out an email to all of the registrants with more information about your specific course.
