Pass the Boaters Exam & Test
  • The final Boating Education Course exam is a multiple-choice test.
  • All boaters must obtain the Connecticut Boaters Certificate by passing the Connecticut boaters exam.
  • Boating education courses are required in order to take the exam in Connecticut.
  • If you do not pass the boaters exam, you can try again with us.
  • Our main goal is to give you the tools and knowledge to always practice safe boating!
Getting a Boat Certificate
  • Take a 1-day boater class. Passing the exam is all you need to do to earn a Connecticut Boating Certificate.
  • Keep in mind that the Safe Boating Certificate can also be referred to as Boat Safety Certificate.
  • In 1996, the Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation (PWC Boating) was added to the Safe Boating Certificate course.
  • In October of 2015, Emily’s Law was enacted, requiring that all boaters also obtain a Water Ski Towing Endorsement. It was consequently added to Connecticut’s boat certification program.
  • Since 2016, the 1-day boater class has consisted of three parts: the SBC, the CPWO, and the SWE materials.
