The BOC-OTWTrCom is responsible for the Boat Operator Certification (BOC) program as well as developing new material for our on-the-water training activities. Related developments funded by grants from external organizations such as the United States Coast Guard also are the responsibility of the BOC-OTWTrCom. The BOC-OTWTrCom also directs and supervises the BOC certifiers, so the Regional BOC Certifiers report to it. The BOC-OTWTrCom recommends externally recognizable levels of proficiency and maps USPS courses into these levels, recommends additional supplemental programs to fill voids, and proposes a formal certification program for internal approval.
Details about the Boat Operator Certification Program are on the BOC web page.
If you have any questions or comments about any aspects of boat operator certification or on-the-water training activities, please contact the National Boat Operator Certification - On The Water Training Committee chairman by e-mail, phone or postal service mail. Please be sure to keep your SEO and/or DEO advised of any correspondence you may have with the National committee. Addresses for the National BOC-OTWTrCom chairman are listed in The ENSIGN and on the Committee Chairpersons page.
