If you’ve successfully completed an official boating safety course such as boat-ed or ilearntoboat, your boater education card is welcome in every state that requires mandatory boater education. Plus, your boater education card will never expire, and it doesn’t need to be renewed.
That means when your plans call for vacationing in another state, a boater education card is your passport to operating a boat there. For example, if you have a Virginia boating license and you’re planning to head over to Maryland for a fun weekend on the water, you’re ready to set sail. That’s because the course at boat-ed.com is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA). NASBLA represents the recreational boating authorities of all 50 states and the U.S. territories.
