The Boater Education Card is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boater education course, and can have benefits such as savings on marine insurance.
Many boating fatalities occur because boaters aren't educated about boating safety. The Alaska believes that an educated boater is a safer boater.
Where can I take my safe boating exam and get my Boater Education Card?
You can take your safe boating exam directly on the Internet at BOATERexam.com®. Once you pass the exam your boater education card is mailed to your home. In the meantime, you can print off a Certificate of Completion that can be used as a temporary card to satisfy the Alaska boating regulations until your permanent boater education card arrives.
Where can I get more information about Alaska boating regulations and the Alaska boater education card?

Many boaters incorrectly use the term "Alaska Boating License" when referring to their Boater Education Card. The Boater Education Card is NOT a boating license. Unlike a driver's license, your Boater Education Card cannot be revoked and is good for life.
