America's Boating Course (3rd Edition)

with Rob Whitehouse


U.S. Power Squadron offers the most comprehensive in-person boating course available. America’s Boating Course gives you the skills you need to enjoy your time on the water and boat with confidence. Our boater safety class meets most states’ certification requirements and is available in both Spanish and English. Taking a boating class reduces your risk of accidents and injuries, saves you money on boat insurance, and qualifies you for a state boat license or operator certificate in most states. Our in-person boating course 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. Get in-depth knowledge of boating safety equipment, and learn how to become a safe boater by learning the dos and don’ts of boater safety. 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, and water sports enthusiasts, and so much more. This course satisfies the Maine law requiring boaters under age 25 to pass an education and safety course before January 2024 to operate on Maine's lakes and rivers. $75 per individual. The cost for couples sharing materials is $95. Please call Merrymeeting Adult Education for couple pricing. No other discounts. ***Class meets Tuesdays & Thursdays.
