New York State Introduces NEW Online Boater Safety Option:
New York State has introduced a new option for boater safety. Two vendors have been approved to provide online access to the boater safety curriculum. The course will cost $29.95 a person for those who successfully complete the course and examination. More details are available at the State website. See BOATER SAFETY ONLINE. The GSLA will continue to offer FREE classroom boater safety instruction for members. (See below)
FREE NYS BOATING SAFETY CLASSES:
The Great Sacandaga Lake Association provides NYS Boating Safety classes during the boating season. The 8-hour course provides successful participants with a NYS Boating Safety certificate. (All graduates receive a 90-day temporary boating certificate. Students under 18 years of age receive a permanent certificate from the State at no charge. Individuals 18 years and older must pay a fee of $10 to New York State to receive a permanent certificate.)
The GSLA class is offered as a member benefit to GSLA members depending on membership type. An individual would normally be charged $55 for the course. An individual membership ($15) in the GSLA entitles the member to one free course. A family membership ($25) provides FREE courses to the member’s family (+10 year of age). The benefit is a good one for the member and great for boater safety on the Great Sacandaga!
