Boat Safe Connecticut followed the guidelines regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by cancelling all our public classes for the 2020 season. Boat Safe Connecticut however, continues to instruct year round, and has specialized in private classes since our inception. We offer private classes for individuals, for groups of any age and reasonable size, including classes for families with school age family members. For more information and a note from the owner, please click below to see our "Classes and Costs" page.

When you take our class:
Our focus is on you to make sure you have the knowledge to operate a vessel safely, and pass the D.E.E.P. provided final class exam. Doing so enables you to immediately purchase your nationally accepted, permanent "Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation" (C.P.W.O. - boating and personal watercraft operator's 'license' and waterskiing/towing endorsement) issued by the D.E.E.P. Our instructors have years of experience teaching boating safety in Connecticut, with State of Connecticut certified teachers and USCG Licensed Captains on staff.
Students successfully completing the class can immediately purchase their nationally accepted boating license from the DEEP and leave class with their license ready to be printed. We provide everything you need including the Boat Connecticut textbook, navigation handouts, information to get a Conservation ID number and to purchase and print your license, course syllabus, the 2020 Connecticut Boaters Guide, and more. The classroom based presentation is powerpoint and video format including student interaction with hands on demonstrations of common boating equipment and supplies.
