The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels is offering five boater safety courses, with a certificate awarded after passing the test, beginning in April and continuing through August 2014.

The courses will be held from 6 to 10 pm each day on CBMM’s campus and runs April 16-17, May 14-15, June 18-19, July 16-17, and August 13-14. The cost is $25 per two-evening session, with space limited and pre-registration required.
 
Any Maryland boater born after July 1, 1972, is required to have a Certificate of Boating Safety Education in order to operate a vessel. The course is also recommended for anyone looking to become a safer, more experienced boater.

The certificate is obtained by passing a Department of Natural Resources approved boating safety course, and is valid for life. Participants completing the course and passing the test will receive this Certificate.

Early registration is recommended as classes fill fast. Contact Helen Van Fleet at 410-745-4941.
