SEMR-9910Recreational Boating Regulations

If you operate a motorized pleasure boat or watercraft, including a sailboat fitted with a motor, there is a legal requirement for proof of operator competency to be carried on board. Most commonly this proof of competency is in the form of a “Pleasure Craft Operator Card”.

Learn about the operator competency requirements; age & horsepower restrictions; regulations for small vessels; and how the Contraventions Act has changed the way boating regulations are enforced.

After a detailed study course of required knowledge statements, participants will be permitted to write a Transport Canada test. A Pleasure Craft Operator Card will be issued to all who successfully pass the test.

Other Information

Boat study guides ($15.00) will be available at the course for purchase from the Instructor.
