      Host A Course

      US Safe Powerboat Handling Course (SPH)

      $450 per Student
      3 Student minimum
      2-day Course (16 hrs)

      This 2-day US Powerboating course is NASBLA and USCG approved. It includes a combination of on-the-water and classroom instruction.

      You will work alongside other students to learn boat handling maneuvers, safety procedures, and boating laws. Whether you’re learning from the beginning, a long time boater looking for certification, obtaining experience for a job opportunity, or trying to reduce your boat insurance costs, this is the course for you! Students can earn most state boating certification, such as the Virginia Boater Safety Card. This course is recognized for meeting the Virginia boater education requirement.

      US Accelerated Safe Powerboat Handling Course (APH)

      $350 per Student
      2 Student minimum
      8-Hour Course

      The Accelerated SPH course is just a short version of the focused state approved SPH certification on practicing boat handling skills.

      This course is 8-12 hours and 80% of that time is on-the-water instruction. To receive the US Powerboating certification, students will be tested via a written exam (50Qs) and practical assessment. Successful students are those who have studied the book and completed the review questions before the class begins. This accelerated course is more flexible than the standard Safe Powerboat Handling (SPH) because it does not include the lengthy classroom portion. This course is focused on hands- on application of skills and consequently NOT approved as meeting the requirements for a state boating safety education card.

      Prerequisite: Completion of a state boater education course is recommended.
