(Chadron)- A boating safety course will be held at the Upper White Niobrara NRD office in Chadron on Tuesday, May 21, according to Scott Eveland, Boating Safety Officer for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
According to Eveland, the Nebraska Boating Safety course is required of all power boat operators born after December 31, 1985, which includes operators of personal watercraft and all other motorboats. The minimum age to operate a motorboat in Nebraska is 14.
The course covers everything from equipment requirements to safe boat operation and accident prevention, and is a great course for both new and experienced boaters. Boat owners who complete the class may qualify for insurance discounts. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children and boaters of all ages are welcome. Students must be at least 14, or turning 14 this calendar year to be certified. The home study with proctored exam option allows students to study online, then attend a shortened review and test session. That session will be offered May 21, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. The $10 fee for this course has been waived. Pre-registration is required and there are minimum student requirements for the class to be held.
