05/24/2017 - Boating Safety Course In Chadron
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is offering mandatory boating safety course in Chadron on Wednesday, May 24. The session will be from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Upper Niobrara White NRD office in Chadron.
Nebraska law requires any motorboat operator, including drivers of personal watercraft such as Jet Skis, born after Dec. 31, 1985, to complete one of the two types of boating safety courses and be in possession of a course certificate. Operators must be 14 years old to drive motorboats and personal watercraft in Nebraska.
The Chadron course is being offered in the home-study format, in which participants download and study materials online before attending a three-hour review and test-out session. Students must be at least 14, or turning 14 this calendar year, to be certified. The $10 fee for this course has been waived. Pre-registration is required, and the course must have a certain number of students to avoid cancellation.
Participants may register by contacting Eveland at firstname.lastname@example.org or 308-289-0017. For the most updated listing and classes at other locations, visit the Boating Education calendar at www.BoatSafeNebraska.org. The site also has other information about boating safety.
