America’s Boating Course

The Chattanooga Sail and Power Squadron (CSPS) will be teaching the United States Power Squadron America’s Boating Course on Saturday, Apil 7, 2018, and again on Sunday, April 15, 2018. The cost is $40.

America’s Boating Course includes:
  • types of boats and their uses
  • boating laws, both federal and state
  • safety equipment, both required and recommended
  • finding your way, and adverse conditions
  • communications
  • trailering, knots and lines, and water sports topics

 

The class includes a final examination that satisfies the TWRA Boating Safety Class requirements.  If you need a TWRA issued boating safety education card, you must purchase a $10 boat safety Type 600 Exam Permit from any business (licensed agent) that sells hunting and fishing licenses (Wal-Mart, Academy Sports, bait stores, marinas, etc.). The receipt from this transaction is your “ticket” to take the exam, and you must bring the exam “ticket” to the examination administrator (required only if you want to obtain a TWRA boating safety education card).  The exam permit fee is in addition to the class fee.  The permit will not be available for purchase at the class site.

For additional information or to sign up for a class, e-mail Bob at csps.signup@gmail.com

THE LAW – Tennessee residents born after January 1, 1989, must have in their possession, a TWRA issued boating safety education card showing proof of successful completion of the TWRA administered boating safety exam if operating a boat or personal watercraft alone.  Non-Tennessee residents, born after January 1, 1989, must show a certificate from any course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA).
