Pontoon manufacturer Premier Marine announced the launch of a program that will reimburse employees and their families who participate in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ boat operator safety course.

“We’re always trying to promote safe boating and encourage our employees and their children to educate themselves on boat and water safety,” Premier Marine president Bob Mennesaid in a statement. “We hope that this program will make it easier for them to be the best boaters they can be.”

The safety course covers a range of subjects, including boat maintenance, navigation, safe boat operation, Minnesota boating regulations and emergency situations.

The course can be taken online through a home-study packet or in a classroom.

After passing a certification test, participants receive a lifetime Minnesota Boater Education Certificate. Passing the test is a Minnesota requirement for unsupervised 12- to 17-year-olds who operate a boat over 25 hp or unsupervised 14- to 17-year olds who operate a personal watercraft.
