Most of the courses are priced at $30, but during the Spring Aboard campaign that is being promoted by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, they will be priced at $15. Many of the courses are presented in partnership with the United States Power Squadron. Some courses include Modern Marine Navigation, Weather for Boaters, How to use GPS, All About Marine Radio, Planning Your Cruise, Hurricane Preparation for Boaters, Learn to Sail, Crew at the Helm, AIS for Boaters and more.

The BoatUS Foundation offers a free online boating safety course that is recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard, approved by NASBLA and meets the boating safety requirement in 36 states.
