« back to courses page

A two-part blended learning course combining classroom instruction with practical, hands-on experience for the new boater as well as the more seasoned boater who wants to improve both knowledge and skill. Successful completion of Part 1 (live online) followed by Part 2 (in-person) and a passing grade on the written exams, is required to qualify for the US Powerboating Safe Powerboat Handling Certification and the California Boater Card. Part 2 may also be taken by a student who already has a California Boater Card. The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) has approved this course and the course is recognized in California as meeting the requirements for a California Boater Card. Upon completing Part 1 and Part 2 you will know about powerboats and outboard motors, required equipment, boat preparation, launching and trailering. You will be able to perform basic boat handling skills including docking, turning, securing a boat, anchoring, minimum control speed, and person in the water rescue. We will also cover basic terminology and boat systems, knots, weather, tides and currents, right of way rules, navigation, safety and emergency procedures, environmental regulations and CA boating laws. Course Format: This course is offered as a Two-Part Blended learning course. Prerequisite: No prior experience needed. Participants must be 14 years of age or older and able to swim 50 yards.
