WHY YOU NEED THIS COURSE!
What's that green marker mean again???
Boating Essentials picks up where Boating Basics leaves off. This course provides in-depth boat operation and safety training. As well, you will experience the challenge of plotting and navigation, necessary skills in boating situations where technology fails. Topics include: global positioning and charts, navigation, conning, plotting, digital charting, anchoring, lines and ropes, electrical issues, towing, and the environment, and more.
NOTE: The Boating Essentials course does not cover the material required for the PCOC card. Anyone operating a power-driven vessel is required to possess a PCOC.
Students taking Boating Essentials who do not already have a PCOC issued by CPS or another provider may take the Boating Basics course which will be offered immediately folloing Boating Essentials. The Boating Basics course can also be taken from CPS On-Line
