Boating Safety Instructors and Boating Ambassadors

Boating Safety Instructors and Boating Ambassadors are people like you who want to make a difference on the lakes in their community.

A Boating Safety Instructor is a certified volunteer instructor whose main responsibility is to teach boating safety education classes in their community.


As the name “volunteer” would imply, the compensation for instructors is the satisfaction of knowing that what you are doing is important, that your contribution may save lives and positively influence the attitudes and actions of those who share or will share Wisconsin waterways with you.

Are you interested in getting involved with your community? Contact your local Recreational Safety Warden (see the WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES for contact information) to learn more about this program.
