Education

Education is one of the three primary missions of the United States Power Squadrons. We pride ourselves on the numerous and excellent education opportunities that we make available to our members and to the public.  There is no better place where recreational boaters can get the quality or quantity of education opportunities that we provide.

Whether you are new to boating or a seasoned veteran, there are plenty of opportunities for you to learn more. Our courses start with a basic boating course, then moves to cover basic seamanship skills, teach you how to navigate using GPS and the US Aids To Navigation (ATON), how to navigate using electronic instruments such as radar. Our courses are so good we teach them to some government agencies, including many local and state agencies and even the U.S. Navy!

If you are looking for something less in depth, we have many elective courses that may interest you.
