Boating Education

Whether your interest is in fishing, sailing, canoeing or water-skiing, boating education is essential. The WCSO Marine Division offers many Boating Safety Classes each year. In order to minimize the loss of life, personal injury, property damage, and environmental impact associated with the use of recreational boats, citizens who are involved in boating activities are strongly encouraged to attend these classes. Please refer to the following information for the current class schedule.

2019 Boating Safety Classes

You must pre-register for the boater safety classes as class sizes are limited. Group enrollment is allowed and encouraged! Please send an email to Deputy Gebauer with your full name(s), date of birth(s), telephone number, and class date that you wish to attend. There are no further steps required for you or your group to register for the class. An email confirmation with additional information concerning the class agenda will be sent back to you, usually within 3 to 5 days. If you are not able to send email please call 734-973-4713 and leave a message with your full name, date of birth and contact number.

Please see the 2019 Boater Safety Class Schedule (PDF). All classes are scheduled 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
