This is the class you must successfully complete to get your New Jersey Boating Safety Certificate, which allows you to legally operate a power vessel (motor boat or PWC/JetSki/Waverunner) on New Jersey waters. Boaters who intend to operate their vessels on non-tidal/fresh waters are also required to have a boating endorsement on their NJ Driver’s License (commonly referred to as a New Jersey Boating License).
Every student that successfully completes the class will also get a free one-year membership to BoatUS (a $25.00 value).
