Safe Boating/Personal Watercraft Certification Course

Winter 2018

The Southington Recreation Department is sponsoring a Safe Boating/Personal Watercraft Certification Course to be presented by the State of Connecticut DEEP. Attendance on all three days of the course is required.

Participants who successfully complete this course and pass the test qualify for a Safe Boating Certificate and a Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation which allow an individual to operate any recreational vessel including a personal watercraft ("jet ski" type vessel) on Connecticut's waters.

The registration fee submitted to the Recreation Department covers only the cost of attending the 3-day course. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will need to purchase the Safe Boating/Personal Watercraft Certificates through the State of Connecticut DEEP for an additional fee of $50.00.

All participants are required to have a State of CT Conservation ID number. You may register for the course without an ID number, but must have one established prior to the first night of class. Click here for instructions on how to obtain a Conservation ID number.
