The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is set to run another annual boat safety course in March.

Organizers said they will take attendees through the “in-depth NASBLA-approved boating safety course titled Boat America.”  NASBLA stands for the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators.

“All skill levels will benefit from a range of learning including core needs to keeping up-to-date on operational laws and required equipment laws that have recently been passed,” organizers said.  

They noted many boat insurance companies offer discounts on boating insurance to boaters who have completed the course successfully.

“We also provide free on-trailer Vessel Safety Checks at your home to ensure you have everything you need!” the Coast Guard said.
