Safe Boating - America's Boating Course

America's Boating Course emphasizes boating safety. Topics covered include: life jackets; fire extinguishers; distress signals; boat operator responsibilities; boating regulations; fueling; boating courtesy; basic rules of navigation; buoys; sound signals; navigation lights, shapes and sounds; boat registration; and environmental considerations. Additional material on waterskiing/tubing as required by Emily's Law is included. This course exposes the tip of the iceberg of boating knowledge, creating an awareness of the know-how needed to skipper a boat safely and earning the successful student the credentials needed to qualify for the required New York or Connecticut Safe Boating Certificate.

The one-day classes conform to the minimum required for State certification.
