Any Maryland boater born after July 1, 1972, is required to have a Certificate of Boating Safety Education, in order to operate a vessel. The certificate is obtained by passing a Department of Natural Resources approved boating safety course, and once obtained; the Certificate is valid for life. Participants completing the course and passing the test will receive this Certificate. The course is also recommended for anyone looking to become a safer, more experienced boater.

To register or for more information, contact Helen Van Fleet at 410-745-4941.
