BOATING SAFETY CLASSES

About Boating Safely

ABS is a concise course lasting eight hours, as mandated by the State of New Jersey. It stresses safe boating practices and boating rules with a lesser emphasis on seamanship and piloting. It is designed for the personal watercraft operator and his needs in obtaining a certificate for its operation. Where there is need for a greater knowledge of seamanship, such as is the case with the primary operators of larger boats, the longer, more inclusive Boating Skills and Seamanship course is better.

The cost of the About Boating Safely course is $60 per person. A concise course text is provided. Successful completion leads to State certification. The registration fee covers all expenses, including NJ State registration and lunch.

 

GPS for Mariners

Replacing our prior GPS course is a modern learning experience that focuses on the GPS equipment typically owned by the recreational boater. GPS for Mariners is a course that has resulted from an exciting synergy between textbook's publisher, the book's author, and the Auxiliary. The course includes the book.

The cost of the GPS for Mariners course is $25 per person. A concise course text is provided.

 

Course Location

All Courses will be held at St/ Peter's United Methodist Church. Enter the building in the middle of the block between 7th and 8th Streets on Central Ave. Pre-registration is encouraged. Deadline for pre-registration is one week prior to the class. Only checks and cash are accepted for payment, no credit cards.
