The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering five, two-day Maryland DNR-approved boater safety courses, beginning on select dates in March and continuing through July.

The courses will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day in CBMM’s Van Lennep Auditorium, and run March 22-23, April 12-13, May 17-18, June 21-22, and July 19-20. The cost is $25 per two-evening session, with space limited and pre-registration required.

CBMM_BoaterSafetyCourse1_2017Participants completing the course and passing the test will receive a Maryland Boating Safety Education Certificate, which is valid for life. The certificate is required for anyone born on or after July 1, 1972, and who operates a numbered or documented vessel on Maryland waters. The course is also recommended for anyone looking to become a safer, more experienced boater or personal water craft operator.

Participants must be 12 years of age and older, with early registration recommended as classes fill fast. To register, go to bit.ly/safeboating2017.
