Is it the Boating safety license?
Boating safety education certification is not the same thing as a Boating license. What you really need is the Missouri Boating Safety Certification Card. You can get the Missouri Boating Safety Certification Card by taking this boat safety course at boat-ed.com. Find out if you need the card.
