Information on local NYS Boater Safety Courses
South Shore Association publishes NY boater safety course schedule.
Governor Cuomo signed legislation last fall that will impose new requirements on boaters in New York. It requires the operators of all powered boats to pass an eight-hour, safety course. The law takes effect May 1 and comes in the aftermath of fatal boating accidents last year on Long Island and upstate.
The requirements of the law will be phased in over a period of years.
