The Nebraska Boating Safety course is required of all power boat operators born after Dec. 31, 1985, which includes operators of personal watercraft and all other motorboats. The minimum age to operate a motorboat in Nebraska is 14.

Eveland said 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. With the homestudy with proctored exam option, students must study online at www.boatsafenebraska.org then attend a shortened review and test session. 

The Aug. 9 course will be held from 9 a.m.-noon. There is a $10 fee for this course. Preregistration is required and there are minimum student requirements for the class to be held. Students must complete the online study portion before class.

To register for the class, call the NGPC office at (308) 535-8025, or for additional information, contact Boating Safety Officer Eveland at (308) 289-0017 or scott.eveland@nebraska.gov  For information on additional classes in Nebraska, visit www.boatsafenebraska.org.
