Boat US Foundation eLearning Center – NY Boating Safety Course
The BoatU.S. Foundation’s Free Online Boating Safety Course is the only FREE course approved to satisfy the New York state mandatory education requirement for boaters born on or after 5/1/1996 as well as all PWC operators who are required to complete a NASBLA approved boating safety course.
After completing the course you will be awarded a temporary certificate that you can print free of charge but you will also need to purchase a permanent boating education card for $13 or apply for the the New York Adventure License as described below. Please allow 4-6 weeks from date of purchase to receive your permanent boating education card.
New York Adventure License Program
If you love to spend time on New York’s waterways, make it easier to carry on the tradition of boating safely. After successful completion of this course, in just a few easy steps, you can choose to have your certification noted, as an anchor icon, on your NY Driver’s License or other identification document issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The advantage is that you no will longer need to carry your boating safety certificate with you when boating, provided you have your driver’s license with you.
