Virginia Boating Safety Course
January 22 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pmFree
The course is free but advanced sign up is required due to classroom limits. A typical Boater Education Course lasts 6-8 hours with exam time. Completing this course and passing the exam meets the VA requirements.
Who Needs Boater Education?
In 2007, the Virginia General Assembly established a boating safety education compliance requirement which has been phased in over the past several years. As of July 1, 2016, all operators (regardless of age) of PWCs (personal watercraft such as jet skis, Sea Doos, and Wave Runners) and motorboats with a motor of 10 horsepower or greater will be required to have a boating safety education course completion card on board when operating a PWC or motorboat.
