Kentuckians required to have a safe boating certificate before getting on the water now have another way to become certified through the internet.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources reminds boaters that those ages 12-17 must obtain a safe boating certificate before operating any watercraft over 10 horsepower by themselves.
From April through September, in each of the state's nine KDFWR law enforcement districts, a six-hour free boating certification course is offered twice a month.
Pre-registration is not necessary.
The Kentucky Boater Education course provides instruction on the safe operation of various watercraft and all boating laws.
A test is given at the conclusion of the course, and those that pass the test are issued a safe boating certificate.
