Terrance (Lyme, CT)
It was a very educational presentation that provided the right amount of visual aid and conversation. I am an instructor and know how difficult it is to keep students engaged especially during this current situation with virtual learning.
Alan (South Windsor, CT)
I was worried that the online class would not leave me feeling prepared. I should not have worried at all. The class was very informative and the instructor was knowledgeable and did a great job keeping everyone interested and involved.
Christina (Canton, CT)
This class made it quick and painless. Everything was clear and easy to follow. Being on a Zoom meeting for all that time can be tedious, but this class kept things moving at a good pace and I was surprised how quickly we got through it all.
Brenda (Windsor, CT)
The instructor was excellent! He used analogies and stories to help us remember key parts of the training, which ought to help us remember this information far beyond the test. Our 11 year old was able to maintain attention and pass the exam.

Informative class that combined the legal and safety regulations of boating with a good deal of common sense. It was clear that the instructor wanted the students to leave the class fully confident in their ability to drive a boat safely and responsibly.
Bobby (Hamden, CT)
The class was great! The instructor was very funny and did a great job at promoting high self efficacy across the board. The information/slides were made straight-forward enough to reach all age groups and keep everyone engaged. Would highly recommend 🙂

Timothy (Bridgewater, CT)
The course was very informative and engaging as I was afraid the eight hours would drag but they did not. I feel much safer heading out this year as our boat will be in the waters off of New Hampshire and not our local lake. Definitely feel better equipped
Joyce (Ashford, CT)
I thought this was a very good course. The instructor was amazing. He was very helpful, kind, engaging and always had an answer for the questions about the material or for struggling students. The four hours also went by pretty fast in my opinion.
Keith (Middlefield, CT)
I find online classes (and, really, non-hands-on learning of any kind — I have pretty intense learning ADD) extremely painful, but this class was as good as it gets for me! Teacher was great and handled the annoying student questions really well and didn’t get off track!
Leslie (Westbrook, CT)
My instructor was Glenn Dean and he made the class interactive and fun. He wants people to enjoy boating, but do it safely. He was willing to do whatever he could to make sure his students understood the topics being taught in the course. I’d highly recommend Glenn.
Conner (Norwalk, CT)
Class was the best! I did not do so well in other courses like my driver’s test so I was nervous for this class but the instructor quickly eliminated those fears. Not only did I pass the test my first time, I feel more prepared then I did heading into the course. Thank you!
Tommy (Durham, CT)
This course was amazing! I was worried that 8 hours on Zoom would go by slowly, but our teacher was extremely engaging and the time flew by. After being on boats my entire life, I found it very valuable to actually learn the rules of the water. I highly recommend this course!
Jodi (Andover, CT)
The course covers it all, and covers it well in an engaging and educational manner. I was quite anxious before the day began, but the instructor put us all at ease right away with his confident and knowledgable approach. His musical taste is also a nice extra! Well done.
Chris (Naugatuck, CT)
Excellent trainer who kept everybody engaged with participants from a wide age group. He was able to simplify and convey information in a manner that everybody could understand. He also emphasized and highlighted materials that were important for the Final exam.

Antonio (Waterbury, CT)
I have been boating with family my entire life. Despite my ‘experience’ I found numerous laws, tips, tricks, etc that I was 100% unaware of. This alone made it worth the while. (My girlfriend and I both took the class with Glenn. He was absolutely amazing, perfect for this course.)
Blake (Litchfield, CT)
This was a great class! Very informative, interesting and enjoyable….well presented. The instructor made it fun. Happy that I took the one-day course and got the certificate the next day. Would highly recommend this course to anyone needing his or her Safe Boating Certificate!
Kevin (Suffield, CT)
The course was very well prepared and presented. Teacher knows how to reach his audience, engage them and teach them the information in a manner that keeps it interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed the class and would recommend it to anyone who desires their Personal Watercraft License.
Morris (Farmington, CT)
I took this because my father in law has a boat and figured I might as well learn something in case something happens on the water. The class was much better than I expected. I am glad I took the course as there was a lot to learn. My teenage daughter enjoyed it as well. Thank you.
Shaun (East Windsor, CT)
Teacher made the course fun and a breeze! He couldn’t hear it because we were all on mute but his jokes did land and I appreciated how he had fun with it. It helped keep me engaged and he explained everything in a manner in which I could understand and it was clear. Highly recommend!
Bob (New London, CT)
At first I was expecting a boring state mandated class that would be boring and useless but to my amazement I actually enjoyed the class, the teacher, and the knowledge that I believe is necessary and very useful while boating for the safety of my family and friends. Again thank you!
Vera (Franklin, CT)
The course is great very informative and the teacher was great also. Making us participate in reading some of the text was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends thanks. I really believe if we follow the safe practices on the water everyone will be safe from accidents.

Jordan (Manchester, CT)
This course was engaging and interesting. Being a teacher myself during this pandemic, I know how challenging virtual teaching can be. My teacher made this course easy to follow and participate in and prepared me perfectly for the test. I would highly recommend Connecticut Boating Certificates LLC!
Bryant (Plainville, CT)
Teacher conveyed information skillfully to the large age differential. He is very patient but kept class on point. I would like to see a class offered for people who already have boating license in another state and just need to learn CT requirements & laws. Thank you.
Ross (Roxbury, CT)
This is a fantastic introduction, yet comprehensive, course to boater safety and waterway knowledge. A great starting place for recreational, weekend boaters, and those that wish to pursue more education in advanced boating operation and seamanship. I would HIGHLY recommend this class to anyone.
Georgia (Killingly, CT)
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!
Earl (Somers, CT)
Very informative and interesting class, I definitely enjoyed it and the instructor was very nice and always made sure we had an understanding of the topic. I definitely feel confident to operate a boat or a PWC now. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends who are interested in getting their boating license.
Lila (Middletown, CT)
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.
Harvey (Vernon, CT)
Teacher was great. He made the information easy to understand and fun to learn. I truly believe that the way he taught this class made all the difference on whether you understood the information or not. So glad I signed up. I was so worried about the exam, but he made us feel like we would be prepared and not to worry about it and it worked.
Wayne (Eastford, CT)
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.
Patrick (Norwich, CT)
A great course. A lot of crucial information was well presented by a knowledgeable and engaging teacher. I have been on and around boats my entire life and I found the course informative and useful. My girlfriend, who had very little boating experience walking in, left with a competent understanding of the rules of the water and basic boater safety. I would recommend it to a friend.
Theodore (East Haddam, CT)
The instructor did a great job keeping everyone engaged, even in the online format. “The Helm” has good resources.
Aurora (Washington, CT)
Cannot believe how much fun I had. I’m not one to be excited for instructional courses like this but I knew almost immediately it was going to be great. Our teacher was super funny, very informative, keeps it interesting, & above all, helps you understand the information in a way that sticks. I’d recommend this to absolutely everyone who’s looking to get their boating license, I’d take it twice if I could. Thanks again!
Jeffry (North Branford, CT)
The course was extremely educational and covered more topics than I could have imagined to prepare first time boat operators for the water. Our teacher did a tremendous job presenting the materials with a perfect balance of “book” topics and real life scenarios from his 40+ years of boating in addition to adding a touch of humor. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to get their Connecticut boating license!
Otto (Southbury, CT)
I genuinely enjoyed it. Teacher was fantastic and engaging, and I like that he kept us reading so we were involved. I’m a veteran teacher and found the presentation to be appropriately paced and the reminders to be very helpful. He gave us the information we needed, but also additional items that weren’t on the test which gave me confidence to get on the water safely. It was exactly what I was looking for in a boating class.
Randy (Morris, CT)
The instructor (Glenn Dean) presented course information in a clear, concise and engaging manner. The information that is presented certainly prepares participants for the Connecticut Boating Certificate exam. In addition, as Mr. Dean is thoroughly up to date on the latest boating regulations, even an old salt can learn something new in this course that can increase one’s ability to “safely ” navigate a vessel in either inland or coastal waterways.
Anthony (Windsor, CT)
Excellent instructor! Really enjoyed the course and psyched to hit the water, SAFELY.

Hello, My thanks back to you for an enjoyable and informative class! I grew up spending every weekend (without exception) offshore with my dad and brother. When our family later moved from Long Island to Florida we made the trip aboard our old wooden boat, just for the adventure of it. Needless to say my boating and navigational skills were well-honed back in those days. Those memories faded over the past 30+ years while living out in Colorado. But now that my wife and I moved to Connecticut I’m really looking forward to getting my sea legs back. Your course, with all of its welcome emphasis on preparedness and safety is a literal lifesaver, especially for an “old salt” like me, Can’t thank you enough and hope to see you out on the water!
Roger (Sharon, CT)
After taking this course, I now realize that everyone needs this boating class…..Excellent! I am comfortable with all the boating rules but most of all this course showed me that safety is so, so important.
Susan (Wallingford, CT)

The Richardson Family (Waterford, CT)
The instructor was incredibly friendly and informative. I thought I knew this information but it reminded me of the critical importanct of knowing it WELL. I was amazed with the way he connected and spoke with my children in regards to safety. This was a perfect way for our family to start off a safe and frolicsome summer on our new boat! Both my husband and I thank you for your time and will recommend you to anyone looking for their license.
A drawback of the process is that I, like most others, rushed out of class after receiving our grade given the long hours without having the chance to properly thank you. It was an EXCELLENT class thanks to YOU! I knew nothing about boating prior. I pursued my license because my boyfriend has two seadoos and wanted me to join him on weekends, which I was readily eager to do. My family will be proud as my dad, uncle and grandpa were lake boaters. In any event I learned a ton and would like both of my kids to take the class next regardless of whether they want to be boaters or not, but because of the education on safety and how important that is in life. I also loved that you spoke from the personal perspective of a parent. Makes it very relatable. Safety first. Thank you for your time and constant energy today. I really enjoyed the class!
Justine (Westbrook, CT)
The presentation was wonderful and even more important, it was very informative. The instructor was great. He was knowledgable and patient with us. He mad sure we really understood the materials. Private is the way to go!

Thanks again, you were great yesterday. I’m a lawyer and every year I have to take about 12 hours of continuing education classes — your style was far better than most of the teachers for the legal classes I have taken over the past 20 years. As I think you know, I took the class with my 14-year old son, 22-year old niece and 55-year old friend, and everyone not only enjoyed the class but they each said that your style and sense of humor helped them to pay attention and get much more out of the class than they otherwise would have. I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone I know who plans to take the course.
Alyssa (North Branford, CT)
The instruction was great, engaging and I feel comfortable navigating. I cant believe I learned how to follow buoys! I actually enjoyed the course. Thanks 🙂

Steve (Southbury, CT)
You conveyed all of the course information in such a way that not only did you hold both of our attention throughout the entire time but delivered it in a way that we understood and retained the important information. To do this for a 13 year old and a 47 year old at the same time is quite impressive. I will refer you to all of my friends and family. Great job and Thank You.
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for yesterday. Taking the Connecticut boating certification class was something on my personal bucket list for a long time. I was a little nervous to sit in a classroom setting for 8 hours yesterday and take a final exam, which I hadn’t done in almost 15 years. Your teaching abilities, and leadership truly showed yesterday. When you looked around the class room and saw ages from 10 years old up to 50 years old, I was amazed at how well you were able to relate to the entire class, make us feel comfortable, relaxed, and engaged the entire time. Too often I am sure you hear the bad experiences and never get a chance to truly know how you did as a facilitator in these kinds of settings. Yesterday was truly remarkable and I felt it was necessary to take 5 minutes out of my day to commend your teaching ability and recognize those individuals who show passion in an activity they love so much. Please don’t change a thing with your style of teaching. I can assure you that everyone in that class yesterday left feeling confident, relieved, informed, entertained, and a little excited to finally get a chance at the open waters. Again, thank you for yesterday and thank you for what you do in informing us of safety comes first.
