USPS Squadron Boating Course


The Squadron Boating Course is a traditional civic service of the United States Power Squadrons organization. Since 1914 local squadrons have presented the course to anyone who wished to attend - to date more than 3 million people. Learning to boat safely is important and the increased knowledge will enhance your safety on the water and your enjoyment of the sport.

    The Squadron Boating Course is designed to be useful to all boaters, from the fisherman in an outboard to the skipper of a large cruiser or sailboat. All boaters are subject to nautical rules and regulations. Skippers should learn and respect traditional boating courtesies. The course is meant to be of interest to the entire family. Boaters 12 and up are welcome. We encourage your family to attend as a group. Each multi-media class is presented by certified boating safety instructors. Participants who pass a written exam will earn the Wisconsin DNR safe boating certificate. Boaters between the ages of 12-17 who pass the exam will receive the Minnesota watercraft operator's permit from the DNR.
Course content includes Lake Superior and inland boating safety information.
Certificates usually qualify adult boat owner discounts with their respective insurance companies.
Class topics include: boat handling, boating terminology, Federal and State regulations, aids to navigation, marine radio, knots, emergency procedures, aquatic invasive species, trailering, and a DNR Safety Warden presentation.
