The instructor was very fluid, funny, but quite informative. He did an incredible job of making students forget they were in a class all day on a Saturday, while the sun was shining.

I liked the professional but easy-going manner in which the material was presented. I especially liked the class participation in the readings, as well as the questions after each section which helped to retain the information from each section. Now I need instruction in how to actually sail my 1980 Pearson 26 weekender-just a slight upgrade from my kayak!!! Thank you.
Great instructor, his background in education truly made a difference. Very kind, clear, courteous and helpful. Not to mention every engaging. Having the quick break and then the lunch break broke down the course time very well.

Glenn, our instructor, was easy to listen to. He gave us hints to help us with some of the rules and regulations that made it easy to remember. I was nervous about the class and content since I am new to boating and found by the end of the class I felt confident that I would be able to try boating!

I had issues with my own schedule and they were very accommodating when I needed to change dates. It’s always a relief when a company is fair and easy to deal with, when you dread making the call to customer service.
The instructor was engaging and informative, and definitely made the content understandable. He was approachable, and gave a nice blend of lecture and student participation. I would recommend this class to others.

About the Boater Exam and all the Jargon...

In order to get an Official Connecticut Boating License, you need to pass the Boater Exam.
You do that by taking a Boating Education Course.  Seems logical enough.

Getting a Boat License

To get an OFFICIAL CONNECTICUT BOATING LICENSE in 2021

  • To begin with, take a one day Boaters class.  As long as you pass the exam, you’ll earn your Connecticut Boating License license.
  • Initially, the boat license consisted of just the Safe Boating Certificate.  However sometimes referred to as a Boat Safety Certificate.  That is to say, both are the same.
  • So then the Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation (PWC Boating) was added to the Safe Boating Certificate Course in 1996.
  • Likewise, on October 1st of 2015 Emily’s Law was enacted.  Hence requiring that all boaters must also have the Waterski Towing Endorsement.  Consequently Connecticut added it to the boat licensing program.
  • To clarify, since 2016 the 1-Day class is three pronged.  That is to say, it includes the SBC, the CPWO, and the SWE materials.
The Boaters Exam & Test

The BOATERS EXAM or BOATING TEST

  • In the first place, the final exam for the Boating Education Course is multiple choice.
  • Therefore, all Boaters must pass the Connecticut Boaters exam.  As a result you’ll get your Connecticut Boaters License.
  • Above all, you have to attend a boating education course to take this exam.
  • Conversely, if you do not pass the Boaters Exam you can try again with us.
  • Indeed the way to take the Boaters Exam in Connecticut is by attending a Boating Course.
  • Above all, Safe boating is the Goal here and you’ll benefit from any education.
The Boating Education Course

The BOATING EDUCATION COURSE or BOAT COURSE

  • Firstly the Connecticut Boating Course is an 8-hour 1-Day Course.  This is in fact mandated by the State of Connecticut.
  • Secondly, it is only offered by Federally and State Licensed providers.  To emphasize the course is really geared towards Safe Boating.
  • Thirdly, CONNECTICUT BOATING CERTIFICATES LLC is Federally and State Licensed to offer this 1-Day course.
  • In conclusion, we are proud to serve you and want to help you get your BOAT LICENSE!
Have an Existing Safe Boating Certificate

Already have your OFFICIAL CONNECTICUT BOATING LICENSE

  • For example, you completed your licensing course before October 1st, 2015.  In short you are grandfathered in for the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement.
  • In addition, anyone who has just a Safe Boating Certificate has two options,
1. Firstly they may retake the course.  Not only does the new course includes Waverunners and Jet Skis but also includes the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement too.
2. Secondly they may take the Upgrade class in Hartford. (Check with the DEEP for availability.)
