Boater Safety Course at CBMM June 7 & 8

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels is offering a two-day Boater Safety Course on June 7 & 8.  The course will be held from 6 to 10 pm each day on the Museum’s campus.

Any Maryland boater born after July 1, 1972, is required to have a Certificate of Boating Safety Education, in order to operate a vessel.

Those under 16 who are operating a motorized boat 11 feet or more and do not have a valid Certificate of Boating Safety Education must be supervised by someone at least 18.

The certificate is obtained by passing a Department of Natural Resources approved boating safety course, and once obtained; the Certificate is valid for life. Participants completing the course and passing the test will receive this Certificate. The course is also recommended for anyone looking to become a safer, more experienced boater.

The cost is $25 with advanced registration needed. For more information or to register, call Helen Van Fleet at 410-745-4941.
