Boating course available online

The new BoaterExam interactive boater education course is now available online for 37 states.

This boating education course is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard, according to the company.

"We are extremely excited about this new course process," said Kerry Moher, vice president of BoaterExam.com, in a statement. "The study guide has more than 150 animations and practice quizzes that will better prepare students to successfully complete the final exam."

BoaterExam.com course participants learn about boat classifications, hull designs, motors, legal requirements for registration and equipment, navigation rules, basic safety regulations and waterway marking systems, all in a narrative fashion with more than 300 original illustrations and 150 animated video clips.

Each of the courses' seven chapters is followed by chapter summaries and practice quizzes.

Students also have access to BoaterExam.com's toll-free customer service help line at (866) 764-2628.

The BoaterExam.com courses and final exams are typically free. In some cases, students have the option to pay a one-time fee only when they pass the final exam to obtain their official results.

Students often can print off a temporary certificate immediately. The permanent Boater Education Card arrives by mail in two to three weeks.
