Need Your Boating Education Certificate?

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is proud to launch About Boating Safely, their new classroom and online course. This boat safety course is designed to be an introductory course to meet the boating education needs of recreational boaters.

A Boat Safety Course You Can Trust

Taking an About Boating Safely classroom course or one of the online boat safety courses adopted by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will satisfy state requirements for mandatory boater education.

And, even if you already have your boating safety education certificate (or boating license, if boating in Alabama), you can stay up-to-date by visiting your state's online boat safety course. When you review your state-specific laws and regulations, you'll be confident you are staying current and staying safe. You may discover that even though you have been boating for many years, you still can learn something new "about boating safely."

Your "Passport" for Boating Safety

Need to carry proof that you are certified to boat safely? In most states, after passing an approved boat safety course, you'll receive a boating safety education certificate. In Alabama, it's a boating license. Regardless of whether your state calls it a certificate, a card, or a license, you can get started now.
