Do you need Utah Boating education?
You need education if you are 12 to 17 years old and will be operating a PWC in Utah.
You must be at least 12 years old to take this online course.
You do not have to be a resident of Utah to take the online course.
Boating education is currently required in several U.S. states and Canadian provinces.
Utah law enforcement officers patrol the waterways to make your boating experience safe and pleasant. Cooperate with them by following the laws and guidelines.
Carry the Card: Vessel operators who are required to have a Boater Education Card must carry the card on board the vessel and have it available for inspection by an enforcement officer.
Penalty: Not carrying your Boater Education Card when one is required can result in a fine.
Is the Boating Card the same as the Boating License?
The Boating Safety Education Certificate is proof that you have successfully completed all of the components of an approved Boating safety course and allows you to go boating. Because the Boating education card or certificate does not expire and does not need to be renewed, it is not called the Utah Boating License.
Even if not required by law to get the Utah boating license, many boaters take the boat safety course in order to save on their PWC or boat insurance.
Do your part to make boating in Utah an enjoyable pastime! Become an educated, responsible boater by completing the Boat Utah course and practice what you learn.
All states, territories, and provinces will recognize boating education cards that meet NASBLA requirements and Canadian Pleasure Craft Operator Cards that meet Transport Canada’s requirements. (This is known as “reciprocity.”)
