This course covers proper trailering techniques, how to anchor correctly, buoys, navigation rules, and how to deal with emergencies when out on the water.

Each Arizona Boater Education Class is open to a maximum of 20 students. However, at least four must be signed up in order for a class to take place. If the minimum requirement isn't met, that month's class will be canceled. So, it's imperative that you sign up as soon as possible.

It's a great idea to have the entire family sign up for a class together. In Arizona, you must be at least 12 years old to operate any watercraft with 8 hp or more. So, get your pre-teen ready to take over the helm if necessary by getting them into a class now. The more people who know proper safety techniques on the water, the better. You never know when you'll need to call on someone else to take over while you're out on the lake. It's better to be safe than sorry.
