OSMB campaign offers boating safety courses

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 14th, 2017

It may still feel like winter, but spring is right around the corner and the Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB) encourages boaters and passengers to enroll in a boating education course before 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.

The OSMB offers boaters three course options: classroom, internet or equivalency exam. Classroom instructors are certified by the Marine Board and teach a nationally-approved Boat Oregon classroom course.

Internet courses are another option and the Marine Board offers three courses that can be accessed from their website. Internet courses are designed to have the boater read the material, take a chapter quiz and, if they pass, progress to the next chapter.
