Our Public Boating Courses are offered to anyone concerned about safe boating. The USPS Boating Course have helped more than 3,000,000 people since 1914 to get acquainted with the nautical rules and regulations, the forces of nature that affect our activity, and the traditional courtesies at sea. It also helped to learn the basics about the mariner's compass, chart plotting, engine troubleshooting, speed-time-distance calculations, bearing taking, and many other subjects.
With today's waters overcrowded with high speed boats, sail boats, personal watercrafts, skiers, and almost any imaginable floatation device, it makes more sense than ever to learn about the rules of the road, safety, and other subjects that will keep your days on the water enjoyable times for you and your family. Safe boating is the main purpose of our public boating course.
Are you planning to buy a boat? Are you beginning to go boating in your friends' boats? Do you have a boat but you never formally studied anything about boating? Or you do not have a boat but you want to learn something interesting and useful, and at the same time have fun? Our Boating Course is for you.
The Public Boating Course covers a complete basic summary of boating operation, trailering, weather, engines, equipment, and government regulations and sailing. During the course, an officer from the Marine Division of the New Jersey State Police gives a very informative lecture on State Regulations.
Boat Smart, our Public Boating Course, is offered in both the Spring and Fall seasons.
A final exam is given at the end of the last class. A New Jersey State Boating Safety Certificate is issued to students passing this exam. For those students who are interested, this class will be followed by a 4 week Chart Smart course.
Boat and Chart Smart Course Fee: $75.00 per student
