August Boater Safety Course at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

. July 24, 2017

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is adding an August 16-17 Maryland DNR-approved boater safety course after demand exceeded capacity for its July course.

The education program takes place from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. each evening in CBMM’s Van Lennep Auditorium. The cost is $25 per participant, with space limited and pre-registration needed.

Participants completing the course and passing the test will receive a Maryland Boating Safety Education Certificate, which is valid for life. The certificate is required for anyone born on or after July 1, 1972, and who operates a numbered or documented vessel on Maryland waters. The course is also recommended for anyone looking to become a safer, more experienced boater or personal watercraft operator.

Participants must be 12 years of age and older, with early registration recommended as class is filling fast. To register, go to bit.ly/safeboating2017. For information on Maryland DNR’s boating safety program, visit dnr.maryland.gov/boating.

Charitable gifts to CBMM’s annual fund support the museum’s educational programs, with online giving and more information at cbmm.org/donate. More information about CBMM’s education programs is at cbmm.org/learn
