Boating on Rivers, Locks and Lakes
This seminar is designed to meet the needs of our large inland boating membership and the general public. Seminar topics include The ICW, The Western Rivers System of Navigational Aids; River Boating; and Locking Through. The seminar is particularly suited to introducing students to experienced local boaters and their squadron because the exchange of local information and experiences can be one of the most interesting and important parts of the seminar. Each student will receive a full color student guide.
Rules of the Road
May 19, 2016
This seminar provides an explanation with examples of the 37 Rules of the Road for both the U.S. Inland Rules and the International Rules (COLREGS). It simplifies the sometimes complex law relating to boat operation for the recreational boater.
Courses for Winter 2016
The Seamanship course is the next step after completing America’s Boating Course, 3rd Edition (ABC3), taking the knowledge and skills learned there and expanding and extending them with this newly updated edition. Or make Seamanship the first step into building boating confidence and competence for safe and fun on-the-water adventures. Seamanship 2012 presents material applicable to both power and sail, covering such topics as the construction and functioning of a boat, the skipper’s responsibilities, preparing the boat for use, handling and maneuvering a vessel under various conditions in close quarters and on the open water, rules of the road, anchoring, emergencies, and marlinespike/basic knots. The Appendices cover boating into the waters of Canada and Mexico, the effects of weather on the boater’s health, and general information on obtaining a US Coast Guard captain’s license. It is suggested that Seamanship be scheduled over nine two-hour class sessions, one session for each chapter and one session for the proctored test.
Would you like to teach other boaters boating safety and learn how to make a good presentation? The USPS Instructor Development course is the perfect course for you. This 8 Week Course goes into developing lesson plans, working with media, and concepts of how to make an interesting presentation. The participant will make presentations and plan a lesson. Those passing the course will be certified by USPS to present the public courses.
