In addition to classroom courses, the Commission has three approved internet-based boating courses. Online  course fees include a Boating Safety Education Certificate.



The Commission-issued Boating Safety Education Certificate is a durable, waterproof plastic card. We punched a hole in it to make it handy to attach to your life jacket, boat keys or the lanyard on your PWC.

Get your card when you complete an approved online boating safety course.

Processing and delivery of permanent Boating Safety Education Certificates may take 30 to 40 days. Should you not receive a permanent card within that time frame, contact the PFBC at 888-723-4741 for assistance. Please note that temporary PFBC Boating Safety Education Certificates are valid for only 60 days from the date of issue.
