New Jersey Boating Safety Certification Program

Who is required to have this critical New Jersey Certification?

  • The boater education and safety law applies to ALL people 16 years and older who operate registered vessels.
  • The boater education program is also necessary for those 13 to 16 that may be operating boats with electric motors and outboards under 10 hp. 
  • All users of personal watercraft (PWC's, Jet Ski's, Wave Runners, etc.) must have the certification
  • In other words, everyone operating a powerboat is required to be certified
  • The certification is a lifetime certification and does not require renewal
  • The certification can be added as an endorsement on your NJ State Driver's License
