National Safe Boating Council - Module 1

This crucial skill-builder Powerboating course is your first step to becoming familiar and comfortable with your boat handling skills. Think of it as the first day of Driver's ED.

Just as you wouldn't jump in a car and head out on the highway your first day, it also makes little sense to hop on a boat and expect to figure it out as you go.

On the Water Sessions  

Starting & Safety

  • Centering the wheel
  • Shifting gears
  • Pre-departure Checklist
  • Station Holding
  • and more...

This entire course is taught on the water and will teach you the basic parts of the boat, rules of the water, operating instructions, handling waves & wind, and safety checklists.

Boating is meant to be fun and relaxing, but no one has fun if you have an accident on the water. By taking this course, you can be confident in your knowledge of the basic safety & operating procedures required to run your boat.
