Boating Safety Class 

Our Boating Safety Class meets New York State certification requirements.

Taking a boating class reduces your risk of accidents and injuries, and may save you money on boat insurance.

Our eight-hour boating class includes a comprehensive introduction to boating, covering boat types, boat engines, boat selection and more.

You’ll learn about boating laws and regulations as well as boat registration and licensing. You will get in-depth knowledge of boating safety equipment, and gain practical knowledge of navigation, rules of the road, handling emergencies and mechanical problems on the water, the basics of towing and trailering, important information for hunters, anglers, water sports enthusiasts and personal watercraft operators.
