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.
