Boating safety course offered


June 26, 2013

HAWLEY, PA — A basic boating safety course will be held Saturday, June 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the PPL Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center. The presenter is Waterways Conservation Officer Bob Plumb of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC).

The PFBC’s eight-hour boating safety class gives boaters practical information so they can make more informed decisions on the water. Topics include boat terminology, legal requirements, water activities, and safety and rescue. Students who pass the exam at the end of the course can apply for their boating safety education certificate from the commission. This certificate will enable people to operate personal watercraft. Bring your own lunch and snacks for the day. A $10 certificate fee is payable to the PFBC after class. Must be 12 or older. Registration is required. Contact PPL at 570-253-7001 or pplpreserves@pplweb.com.

Additional information about upcoming boating classes can be found on the PFBC’s website at www.fish.state.pa.us.
