FREE Ohio Boater Education Course

Saturday, April 22, 2023 - 9:00am

All newer boaters must pass an Ohio Boating Education Course (OBEC) before getting behind the wheel. Boat operators born on or after January 1, 1982, must complete a boating course or pass a proficiency exam. Classroom boating courses offer hands-on instruction with audio and visual materials and give boaters a chance to ask questions directly to an instructor. Topics include knowing your boat, operating safely, legal requirements, and boating emergencies. The Course will be team-taught by certified Instructors along with MWCD and ODNR officers, which include a minimum of eight hours of teaching and a written exam.
