Here’s Why We Recommend Taking A Boater’s Safety Course
A boater’s safety course makes you more knowledgeable in the care and handling of your boat, helping you navigate more responsibly when out on the water. In the state of Oklahoma, boat operators between the ages of 12 and 15 are required by law to take a class in boater safety when driving a vessel of over 10 horsepower.
It is generally recommended that you seek out instruction from a curriculum that is approved by NASBLA or the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators. You can seek more information from any of our helpful Insurance Source Solutions representatives, and there are both classroom and online options.
One immediate benefit is that you will have access to far more locations to launch your boat, as many marinas and clubs will require their guests to obtain a certificate in boater safety before allowing them to dock.
Some boats are more complicated than others, and obtaining the necessary training to be skilled in all the functions your watercraft performs can be daunting for the novice without instruction.
There is also a great deal of etiquette that must be practiced when coming into contact with other boats, and a boater safety course will teach you the expected standard conduct. This includes any laws that apply to boating in your location as well as common courtesy extended to other parties. In addition, you may be eligible for discounts on your insurance when your provider is presented with your notice of completion.
