The Antique Boat Museum is proud to continue its long-standing partnership with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary by offering multiple Boater Safety courses throughout the summer season. The USCG Auxiliary’s course is accepted by New York and many other states that require certification to operate motorized pleasure craft.
While this course is offered by the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, registration with the Antique Boat Museum is required to be added to the roster.
Online: Students will need a computer or tablet with internet access, a functioning webcam and microphone to participate in this class. Textbooks can be picked up at the Antique Boat Museum or mailed for an additional fee. A Google Meet invitation will be emailed to all students immediately prior to the start of class each evening. You only need to register for and attend one session to receive your certificate.
On-campus: Study materials are included in tuition but students should bring their own writing utensils and notebooks. Meals are not provided. Weekday evening on-campus courses take place outside of the Museum’s regular operating hours. For this reason, only registered students will be permitted in campus buildings or on the grounds while on-campus class sessions are taking place.
