Welcome to Boater's Academy, a NASBLA approved and U.S. Coast Guard recognized course. This course was created to teach you the basics of boating and some of the specific regulations you need to be familiar with in order to stay safe and comply with federal and state regulation. More than 40 states have educational requirements that need to be met before you may operate a boat or personal watercraft on state waters. Anyone who operates a powered watercraft must have their own boater education card or else the boat owner and non-certified operator can face fines.
