VIRTUAL ABC SAFE BOATING COURSE.

EARN YOUR FLORIDA BOATERS EDUCATION CARD

The safety of our volunteer NASBLA instructors and the students is our first priority during this COVID-19 Pandemic. At United States Power Squadrons we have created a new virtual learning program that is approved by NASBLA and the State of Florida to provide boating education virtually. We have adapted our normal ABC classroom course with a interactive virtual classroom where students can interact in a controlled manner and ask questions of the instructors.

The Course will start Tuesday Nov 11th, at 7pm- approx 9pm  from the comfort of your computer or smartphone app.  This 6 week ABC Safe Boating virtual course includes a textbook (hard or digital copy),  Digital handouts, and upon completion NASBLA/Florida State boaters education card.
