Students can now get their Hawaii boater education card online at boat-ed. The online course is state-approved training that covers the same material featured in the Boat Hawaii – A Course on Responsible Boating manual.
Plus, the course features realistic illustrations, interactive animations and live-action video. Students learn safe boating skills such as casting off and docking, understanding traffic laws on the water, dealing with emergencies and more. Students who receive their boater education certificate or boating license pay a one-time fee, which is due only when they pass the course.
Students who pass the course can print out the temporary certificate and immediately begin enjoying safe boating. The lifetime Hawaii Boater Education Certificate boating license will arrive by mail in 7-10 business days. Hawaii’s boater education card is accepted by all states that have mandatory boater education requirements. Likewise, Hawaii will accept boating education cards that are issued by states that meet these requirements. This is due to the fact boat-ed/hawaii is approved by the Hawaii Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation and the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators as well as being recognized by the United States Coast Guard.
Another great feature of Hawaii’s new online boater safety course is that it’s available on any device including smartphones, tablets, laptops and Internet TV. Students can access the course on the Web even if the only way they have to connect to the internet is via their smartphone. For more information, visit boat-ed.
