Our Famous Safe Boat Handling course takes place over two consecutive days, where the 16-hour curriculum is taught in several alternating sessions. First in a classroom and then On a Boat!

This hands-on training approach dominates the boring classroom-only or online styles other schools use.

You will earn your NASBLA, DNR & US Powerboating Certificates in this US Powerboating course.

These three licenses give you the equivalent of a Boating License, which makes you eligible to rent & operate boats in all 50 States.

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to safely operate a 25' or less powerboat and improve their boat-handling skills.
