What is the Conservation ID system for?

The Conservation ID number system in Connecticut is for your benefit.  All of your outdoor licensing activities link to this number.  This is easier than having 4 or 5 pieces of paper to sort through or save.   All of your Connecticut licenses will appear on one piece of paper.  This includes your Safe Boating Certificate.  Once you have obtained the education requirements your instructor will enter you into the system.  At that point you will be able to purchase and download your Safe Boating Certificate.  You can also reprint your Certificate at any time and from anywhere as long as you have internet and a printer!

When you are done:

Once you have completed this process visit our Public Course Schedule to choose a class most convenient for you!
