Boat America – a Coast Guard Auxillary Safe Boating Course

with USCG Auxiliary


This team taught, 8-hour, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary course provides recreational boaters with the knowledge and skills to boat safely on either inland or coastal waters. General topics included in the BA course are boating operations, boat handling, boating laws and regulations, water traffic patterns, equipment requirement, and introductory navigation. Students will complete a multiple-choice exam at the conclusion of the course. Participants who pass the written exam are awarded a USCGA certificate that may be used to satisfy state boat operator certification as well as possibly earning a discount on insurance premiums (NASBLA) from many marine insurers. This course is approved by the National Association of Boating Law Administrators.

If COVID-19 becomes a problem, this class will switch to ZOOM.
