For those 16 years of age and older
If you are 16 years of age or older, you are not required to take a proctored exam in a classroom, but completing this online course and obtaining your Boater Education Card may make you eligible for a discount on your marine insurance and will help make our waterways safer and more enjoyable.
For those under 16 years of age
This online boating safety course is approved by the Colorado State Parks as a study tool for those persons required to take a proctored exam in a classroom setting (14-15 years of age to operate a motorboat). Successfully completing this exam will prepare you to obtain the Colorado Boating License.
If you are under 16 years of age, you can use the course and exam as a study tool but you are not able to operate a motorboat or take the proctored exam until you are at least 14 years old.
