Boater education requirement mandatory starting July 1

Boaters, do you know the law on life jackets, minimum age limits for boat operators, or the punishment for boating under the influence? The Georgia Department of Natural Resources wants boaters to know the rules and be safe on the waterways in Screven this summer.
A new boater education requirement has been set for all vessel operators born on or after Jan. 1, 1998, making a boater education course mandatory July 1, 2014.
“In an effort to provide a mechanism for ensuring that Georgia boaters are knowledgeable, boaters will be required to complete a boating education course,” DNR Lt. Col. Jeff Weaver, assistant director of Law Enforcement, said in a press release. “After all, tragedy can happen quickly and making an effort to learn boating laws, rules and regulations can potentially save a life – including your own.”  
Exemptions for the boater education course are as follows: a person licensed by the Coast Guard as a master of a vessel; a person operating on a private pond or lake; or a non-resident who has in his or her possession proof that he or she has completed a NASBLA-approved boater education course or the equivalent.
Currently there are no courses scheduled for the area, but boaters wanting to take the required course can go to and complete an online course.
