The mission of the Natural Resources Police, Boating Safety Education Program is to provide the boaters of Maryland the necessary information to operate a vessel safely on our waterways and also to make their experiences as enjoyable as possible. Safety always plays an important role in maximizing the enjoyment of outdoor activities. With a program that focuses on this aspect, we hope to provide boaters from across the State the materials and education to do just that.
The Boating Safety Education Law requires that any person born on, or after July 1, 1972, must have in their possession a certificate of boating safety education while operating a numbered or documented vessel on Maryland waters. Click here to learn how to obtain a valid Boating Safety Certificate.
