Module 01 - Boating Basics

Summary

As a boat operator, you must have knowledge of basic boating terminology, engine types, and the different types of boats you may operate or encounter while boating.

Always be sure that you understand the limitations and handling characteristics of the different types of boats, hull types, and styles, that operate in Canada’s waterways.

By obtaining your Pleasure Craft Operator Card you can legally operate a motorized boat in Canada, plus you’ll have the knowledge and skills you need to boat safely and be confident while on the water!
