Two day Safe Powerboat Handling courses at SUNY Maritime, Bronx NY, will restart in the spring. 

As an alternative, taking a one-day state boating safety course during this winter will prepare an instructor candidate to take a one-day Accelerated Safe Powerboat Handling course when available at SUNY early next spring. Or contact SUNY to arrange a customized one-day Accelerated Safe Powerboat Handling course at your own club.  

Both NY State and Connecticut have classroom-style boating safety courses available now, both online and in-person (New York courses and Connecticut courses).
