America's Boating Course is an eight hour course covering the basics of boating and is appropriate for youth as well as the adult boater. Successful completion of this course satisfies the education requirement for youth to operate a PWC in both Virginia and North Carolina.

Virginia now has a law that all boaters in the waters of Virginia will have to show proof of taking a Boating Course.

North Carolina requires that all PWC and Motor Boat Operators born after 1 Jan 1988 will have proof of taking a Boating Course, if they are operating a vessel with with an 10 HP engine or greater.

All classes are on Saturday from 8:30am to 5:00pm, with the exam given at the end of class. Please bring your lunch - none will be provided. It is a busy day-but rewarding. Remember - preregistration and prepayment are required.
