IRVINE, Calif. – A free Internet boating education course has been developed by the United States Power Squadrons, Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., and the Northwest Personal Watercraft Safety Project, according to a release today from Kawasaki.
The course, available at PWCSafetySchool.com is a complete boater education course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, and is unique in two ways, the company reported.
The course is offered free of charge and it is the only online course that is specifically tailored to the needs of personal watercraft (PWC) education, Kawasaki said.
"Kawasaki has supported boating education for years and is pleased to join the U.S. Power Squadrons to launch this PWC-oriented boating education course,” said Roger Hagie, director of public affairs for Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A. “I would encourage every Kawasaki watercraft operator, as well as all other PWC operators, to take the free online course."
The course has been in the making for over five years and consists of an education handbook and test with a series of multiple choice and matching questions covering all aspects of safe and responsible boating, according to the company.
