Mandatory Boater Education
Boaters in Washington need to have their Washington State Boater Education Card with them when operating a boat 15 horsepower or greater. Boater operators born before January 1, 1955 are exempt but may choose to get a card if they plan to boat in Canada or Oregon since both require mandatory education.
Classes offer students the chance to interact with an instructor who is an experienced boater, learn specific local boating information, and network with other boaters.
Upon successful completion of the class, students will only need to send in their application with the following supporting documents to Washington State Parks to get a Boater Education Card.
- Check or money order for $10, made payable to Washington State Parks.
- A legible copy of your proof of course completion or exam certificate (received at the conclusion of the class, upon successful completion).
This class will be held at the Black Diamond Police Department (25510 Lawson Street, Black Diamond, WA) on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 from 9-4pm. The cost for the course, which includes your book and other materials, is $25.00. If you have questions or to register for the class please contact Keith Harding at firstname.lastname@example.org
