THE USPS PUBLIC BOATING COURSES

The Squadron Boating Course is our primary civic effort toward public instruction in the fundamentals of safe boating. Both short Boat Smart (8-hour) and long Boat Smart + Chart Smart (12-hour) formats are designed to familiarize the student with the fundamentals of safe boating and qualify for certification in most states that require boating education before operating a watercraft. Subjects include:
Boat handling under normal conditions

Some insurance companies offer discounts on boat insurance for successful completion of the Squadron Boating or Boat Smart courses.
