Learn boating safety at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands

Get an early jump on the boating season by taking a safe boating course from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission boating safety class gives boaters practical information so they can make more informed decisions on the water. Topics include boat terminology, legal requirements, water activities, and safety and rescue. Boater safety education certificates are required for all operators of personal watercrafts and for boat operators born after Jan. 1, 1982, who operate motors of 25 horsepower or greater.

Students who successfully complete this course may apply for a boating safety education certificate from the commission for $10. The boating class is free and open to anyone 12 years old and up. Space is limited, however, and you must pre-register.

To register, call the Riverlands at 1-866-832-3312. More information about the course can be found on the commission’s website at www.fish.state.pa.us.
