Massachusetts Offers Free Boating Safety Classes
June 28, 2011
The Massachusetts Environmental Police have announced that they will offer free boating safety classes this summer. The program, Boat Massachusetts 2011, will focus on teaching participants about boating equipment, as well as how to operate a boat in a safe and responsible way.
The course is available to anyone over 12 years of age and will allow participants to operate a boat legally without adult supervision, and in any state that requires completion of a boating safety course.
The courses total 10 to 12 hours of instruction and locations include Falmouth, Dennis, and Marion. There are a total of four classes and all must be attended in order to earn the Basic Boating Safety Certificate.
