November 9 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


This one-day course developed to provide the skills and confidence needed to explore the coast and inland waters by boat.  Basic knowledge and skills are needed to have safe and enjoyable boating experiences, and this course is perfect for families that have just purchased a boat or are planning to in the future; and also for the boater keeping up with changes to boating regulations and laws.  Successful completion of the course will also certify a minor, from 12 to 16 years of age, to operate a powerboat, including a Personal Water Craft / Jet Ski for 16 & 17 year-old operators, on Massachusetts waters.  Certification is in conjunction with the Mass. Environmental Police.  Rhode Island residents born in/or after 1986 can also take the “Challenge Exam” for the RI Boater Education Card to operate motor vessels over 10 HP along with anyone, any age, from any state, wanting to operate a PWC on RI waters.  ABS also meets the requirements to operate a vessel in many other states & most countries where boating safety education is mandatory.  Several of the boating insurance companies offer a discount on premiums on successful completion of this course.  There will be a one-hour break for lunch. Lunch will not be provided, please bring your own or visit a local establishment.  Participants ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a registered parent/guardian.  Register soon as space is limited. For registration or information contact Ed Tavares at 508-404-8088
