This option is for individuals either with or without prior certification who are not interested in obtaining a "Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation" but want to learn the basics of boating to be a guest of others, or wish to refresh their knowledge of boating safety and operation. In addition, use this option to add the "jet-ski" operator certification to your current "Safe Boating Certificate."
