Note:
On 27 Sept 2013 Governor Cuomo signed an act that amended NY navigation law and supersedes the Suffolk County law that mandates boater education. The new law requires operators of mechanically propelled vessels in NY waters (who must be over 10 years old), born on or after 1 May 1996 to be holders of a boating safety certificate.

Exemptions include: minors between 10 and 18 must have a certificate unless accompanied by an adult certificate holder, new boat owners within a 120 day grace period, boating safety instructors, US Power Squadron members, USCGA members, licensed captains, or on duty emergency service, rescue and law enforcement personnel. America's Boating Course (ABC), the NY State Safe Boating course, and other approved courses satisfy the education requirement. The NY State course is more appropriate for young boaters and ABC is finest course available and the one to choose for adults and older teens.
* Most course fees are discounted for United States Power Squadron members and there is a small fee for students who have completed a course or seminar in the past and want to audit the current class as a refresher.
