Free boating safety course to be held at West Point Lake

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Coast Guard, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, will conduct a free personal watercraft and boating safety course at the West Point Lake Project Management Office.

The course will be held May 12. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.

Participants will receive a certificate from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources upon completion of the course.

The course meets Georgia’s law that requires completion of a safe boating course for persons born after January 1, 1998 who wish to operate a personal watercraft or boat without adult supervision.

For Alabama residents, the certificate will exempt them from taking the written exam when obtaining an
Alabama boating license.

A maximum of 25 participants can be accommodated for the course on a first-come, first-served basis. 

To pre-register you can at the Georgia Department of Natural Resources website.
