Houston Sail and Power Squadron offers the Boat Operator’s Certification Program. It is a special program for USPS members that will certify their skills at various levels of recreational boating proficiency. Each skill level has a specific set of requirements that include:
- USPS Courses
- USPS University Seminars
- On-the-water skill demonstrations
To be certified, a member must be at least 16 years of age, be mentally and physically capable of operating a boat, and have sufficient visual and auditory sensory ability to do so. Holding a driver’s license will suffice to certify meeting these requirements.
There are four levels of certification:
- Inland Navigator
- Coastal Navigator
- Advanced Coastal Navigator
- Offshore Navigator (under development)
Use the PayPal button below to purchase your starter kit for each level.
