The course is an initial boating course and is taught by instructors certified by the United States Power Squadrons.
The cost of the course is $40 per person which includes an “On The Water” component. For additional members of the same household, the cost is only $13 if the course text is shared.
Advance registration for this course is required. If you are interested in registering, contact the squadron education officer, Bob Hunt, at (918)787-8908 or email [email protected].
During the “On The Water” component, certified instructors use their own boats to give students instructions on required safety equipment, slow speed maneuvering, pivot turns, man overboard drills and other useful boating skills.
Completion of America’s Boating Course qualifies successful students to receive a free 6 month trial membership in United States Power Squadrons.
The Grand Lake Sail and Power Squadron is the area’s premier boating organization, comprised of over 125 members.
