Prepare for boating season

The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks encourage boaters to enroll in a boating education course prior to the kickoff of the boating season.
During the week of March 19-25, as part of the Spring Aboard—Take A Boating Education Course campaign, many course providers are offering discounts or other incentives for students who enroll or complete a boating safety education course.
U.S. Coast Guard statistics indicate that of the accidents where the level of operator education was known, 80 percent of boating deaths occurred on boats where the boat operator had never received boating education instruction.
Montana is one of 49 states and U.S. territories that require proof of completion of a boating education course for operators of some powered vessels.  Montana law requires youngsters ages 13 and 14 who plan to operate a motorboat, jet ski or other personal watercraft with 10 horsepower motor or more this summer must have a valid motorboat operator’s safety certificate or be accompanied by someone 18 years of age or older.
A Montana motorboat operator’s safety certificate for youth and adults is available through a home study course or online boating courses.  The home study course is available free of charge at all FWP offices. Links for the online boating courses can be found at the FWP website  fwp.mt.gov/education/outdoorRec/boatingFloatingKayaking/class.html#online.
