Offering boating courses
to the Public has been
a traditional civic service of the
United States Power Squadrons.
On October 11, 2012 the Suffolk County Executive signed a law that will require all Suffolk boat operators to have evidence that they have attended an approved boating safety course. America's Boating Course, offered by the United States Power Squadrons (USPS), is the finest course available that meets this requirement.
If you have taken a USPS safe boating class in the past and have lost your certificate,
contact us so we can attempt to find it in our records.
To learn more about any of these, choose the
one that interests you from the list to the left.
Contact information for courses offered by PBPS is available on
the “Course Schedule” page. If you are looking for a course in
another area, use the D3 Education Hotline 1-800-EH1-USPS.
Courses and seminars are arranged in groups,
Public, Member/Advanced and USPS University.
The main topic page for each will explain the differences.
There is also a USPS Boat Operator Certification program.
