The course was organized well, it flowed smoothly, and practice makes for a good final exam outcome. In sum, I can say only good things about this boater education service.

It’s the perfect time of year for those enjoying Oregon waters to do their part to make boating safer and more enjoyable. It's easy to become an educated, responsible boater by completing the Boat Oregon safe boating course.

At (, boaters learn the official boat education content developed for the Oregon State Marine Board. The online boating course lets students earn their Oregon Boater Education Card and comply with Oregon law. All boaters must successfully complete a boating education course to legally operate a powerboat in Oregon. Although it’s often called a boating license (or jet ski license), the certification card isn’t like a driver’s license—it’s good for life and never has to be renewed.

The Boat Oregon course offers the highest-quality online experience—less text, plenty of interactive reviews and practice, and on-the-water videos.

Students move quickly through short segments designed for bite-sized reading and quick comprehension. Learning is reinforced with interactive animations, and students feel like they’re on the water as they study casting off and docking, rescue techniques, the "Circle of Death," and other boaters safety course topics.

Best of all, Boat Ed includes more than an hour of streaming video with 45 exciting on-the-water action sequences. A student wrote: "The videos drove the point home or provided a review. This was way better than sitting in a classroom, and I liked the fact that you could do it in your own time!" Getting an online boaters license has never been so fun!

Students study the fast-paced boating safety course ( online when it fits their schedule—setting up a free account and logging in or out as they wish. The online boating test fee includes the boat course, unit quizzes, and two attempts at the online boating license test. No payment is required until students pass the final boaters exam.

After passing the Oregon boating exam, stuents may order the state-required permanent card online, and immediately print out a certificate of completion, which serves as a temporary operating permit (or boating licence, as it’s sometimes called).

The recognized leader in boating safety, Boat Ed is the official and exclusive provider of print, video, or online boating safety courses for 49 states, plus the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. For more information about boater's licence or safety certification requirements, please visit (
