The Warren County Sheriff’s office is hosting a second boater safety course, after the first one filled up. 

The course is scheduled for July 1, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office Training Center, 1400 State Rte 9 Lake George, NY. 

A Boating Safety Certificate is required for anyone operating a personal watercraft (PWC) on the waters of New York State. In addition, everyone born on or after 5/1/96 is required to successfully complete an approved course in boater education in order to operate a motorboat.

This class is intended for adults and children over age 14. Successful completion of this course will allow those 14 or older to operate a personal watercraft in New York State.

This is a fast-paced training course taught by certified Warren County sheriff’s marine patrol officers and is designed to educate boaters on the many facets of safe boating practices.

Attendees must pre-register by calling 518-743-2500 (Select option “1” and ask for “Boater Safety”).
