Leading online boating educator BOATERexam.com is proud to announce that it will be cutting the cost of its online course by an unprecedented 50% to support the Spring Aboard Campaign, which runs from April 20th to April 26th, 2015.
Organized by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), Spring Aboard is a national campaign to encourage boaters to take a boating course before the start of the summer boating season. It is the first ever national campaign designed specifically to promote boating education.
“Taking a boating course is one of the best things boaters can do to ensure that a fun time on the water doesn’t end in tragedy. It is why many states require boating safety education,” said Eleanor Mariani, President of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators. “NASBLA hopes the Spring Aboard national campaign will result in more boaters completing a boater education course and using that knowledge to boat safely on the water.”
Recent statistics from the U.S. Coast Guard show just how important boating education is. In 2013, there were 301 boating fatalities where it was known whether or not the operator of the vessel had taken a boating safety course. In 241 of those fatalities, or 80% of cases, the operator had no boating education.
“We’ve worked really hard over the past year to make our newest course the most fun and convenient way to learn about boating safety,” said Kerry Moher, Co-founder of BOATERexam.com. “Every page of our course has a short animated film to engage students, which also makes the time fly by. We want boaters to know that taking a boating course isn’t just a smart thing to do, it can also be a lot of fun.”
BOATERexam.com will be reducing the cost of its NASBLA-approved online boating course by 50% for all customers who sign up between April 20th and 26th, 2015. Customers have two weeks to complete the course after signing up and only pay after passing the course.
