Boater Safety Course

BALLSTON LAKE — The United States Power Squadron in cooperation with the Ballston Lake Improvement Association (BLIA) has announced a spring Boater Safety course.

The eight-hour series will be taught in four classes, scheduled for May 9, 10, 16 and 17 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. at the Ballston Lake Fire House, located at 1125 Route 146A. All classes must be attended and participants must pass a test as requirements of New York State to become certified.

Peter Herman, President of the BLIA and a long-standing certified instructor of the United States Power Squadron, will teach the course. Upon successful completion, each student will receive a certificate and a plastic card to carry while boating.

The certification is mandatory for youth 10 years of age and over to operate a powerboat. To be certified to operate a personal watercraft (jet ski) all drivers must pass the course and be over the age of 14.
