Boating Education Law!!

The NH Boating Education Law requires any person over age 16 who operates a motorized vessel, with power in excess of 25 horsepower, to have a valid safe boater education certification. To receive lifetime certification, an individual must pass an approved safe boater education course, which provides a minimum of eight hours of instruction, or receive at least an 80 on an equivalency exam. About 27 states have similar requirements.

The requirements will be phased in by age groups. The first group, anyone born after Jan. 1, 1983, must be certified by Jan. 1, 2002. One year later, that requirement extends to anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1977. Each successive Jan. 1, the law expands to boaters born on or after Jan. 1, 1973 (2004); 1967 (2005); 1963 (2006); 1957 (2007) and everyone else by 2008.

Information about the NH Department of Safty Services Boating Education Courses. The Washington Police Department arranges for training classes held in Washington. Contact the WPD for more information.
