All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators safe boating certificate, a Rhode Island state boating license and US Powerboating Start Powerboating Right certification.

Dates and locations include:

  • July 6-7, Wickford (with optional advanced boat handing on July 8)
