This boating education course is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), recognized by the US Coast Guard and covers 100 percent of the state’s exam requirements.
BoaterExam.com course participants learn about boat classifications, hull designs, motors, legal requirements for registration and equipment, navigation rules, basic safety regulations and waterway marking systems all in a narrative fashion with more than 300 original illustrations and 150 animated video clips. Each of the course’s seven chapters is followed by chapter summaries and practice quizzes.
A Mississippi Boater Education Card is required for all persons born on or after June 30, 1980, who wish to operate a powered watercraft on Mississippi waters.
