   If you are interested in an exciting, in-depth boating safety course, please consider taking America's Boating Course.

     All persons born on or after Jan 1 1982 must complete a safe boating course to operate vessels powered by greater then 10 horsepower in the State of Ohio. This also includes all personal watercraft. America's Boating Course fulfills Ohio's boater education requirement.

    Many boat insurance companies will offer discounts on boating insurance to boaters who successfully complete America's Boating Course. And, this beginner boating class will give you the knowledge needed to obtain a boat license or safety certification in many states.

    This boat safety course is very fun and very thorough. The course content has been developed in conjunction with state boating safety agencies responsible for boater education, is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), and is recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard.

    There are two versions of this course offered: an 8 hour course and a 16 hour course. The 8 hour course instructs students on basic boat handling skills including aids to navigation, rules of the road and all the necessary equipment required to operate your boat safely and legally. The 16 hour course includes all the content indicated above and adds an introduction to the nautical chart and basic piloting skills.
