While boating season still is months away, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission suggests that now is the time to take a boater safety course.
A list of boating safety classes is available at boatsafenebraska.org. The list includes six-hour classroom courses and three-hour home study review and test courses. More classes will be added to the list during the year.
Persons born after Dec. 31, 1985, who operate a motorboat or personal watercraft in Nebraska, must have successfully completed the Nebraska boating safety course. They also must be in possession of a course certificate when operating the boat.
