With the Boat Operator's Certification Program, USPS will certify USPS members at various levels of recreational boating proficiency. In the United States, The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has asked congress to authorize the Transportation Secretary to establish requirements for standards of proficiency for recreational boaters.  We intend to have USPS certification accepted as the above proof and be accepted as the national certificate for the USA. USPS currently plans four levels of Boat Operator Certification; Inland Navigator; Coastal Navigator; Advanced Coastal Navigator;  Offshore Navigator.
