Boater Education

Boater EducationThe South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) Boater Education Program teaches the fundamentals of safe and responsible boating. This is necessary to reduce loss of life, personal injury and property damage while increasing boating enjoyment for outdoor enthusiasts.

Who needs a Boater Education?

Boaters under 16 years of age are required by law to pass an approved boater education course before operating, without supervision, a personal watercraft (jet ski) or a boat powered by 15 hp motor or more.

Taking a boater education course will allow you to comply with the boating law and may also make you eligible for a discount on your boat or Personal Water Craft (jet ski) insurance.

SCDNR offers two (2) options to take the Boater Education Course.

1. Instructor-led Classes

The preferred Boater Education method is through a free six (6) hour instructor-led classroom course. Classes are generally offered in a one day format. All classes end with a Test to pass the course.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the United States Power Squadrons® also provide classes throughout the state. These classes are offered for a minimal fee. Many of these classes can be found on the Boating Course Calendar.

SC Boater Education Handbook

Remember, collisions can be prevented easily if every vessel operator fulfills three major responsibilities:

  1. Practice good seamanship. It is the responsibility of every boat or PWC operator to take all necessary action to avoid a collision.
  2. Keep a proper look out. Failing to keep a sharp lookout is the most common cause of collisions
  3. Maintain a safe speed. Safe speed is the speed that insures you will have ample time to avoid a collision. Always remember to watch for wake zones.
