Several reasons why a United States Power Squadrons boating safety class can be of greater significant value for you and your family to participate in and complete:

  • Successful completion of the basic course means more than just being handed a piece of paper. You are now able to JOIN the USPS and become a member of a community that is very actively involved in boating of all forms and at all levels.
  • Your education does not have to stop with just the one simple class on rules and etiquette.
  • Continuing education is available for as much depth and breadth as you are willing to strive for in all areas of maritime happenings. As a member education is never pushed on you but made available for you at all times and in many ways. You may achieve a very up-to-date and extensive education at a very reasonable cost and at your pace. It is part of the reason and purpose why the USPS exists.
  • Your voice will be heard at a National level on those topics that are of concern to you; and if appropriate may be carried further with the backing of a National organization.
  • You are not required to participate in any set or scheduled functions but are encouraged to for your own betterment. Also that the "Squadron" to which you belong may benefit from your experiences as well.

These are just a few of the benefits you will come to realize by taking the United States Power Squadrons Basic Boating Course. You will meet new friends with the same interests and yet diverse backgrounds. You can learn from the old and the new while being linked to an organization that one of its sole reasons for existing is to enhance the public's knowledge about safe boating and its many pleasures.

There are many reasons to take a safe boating course, The United States Power Squadron feels it offers you more of what everyone wants and needs towards a better and safer enjoyment of boating.
