Take a boater safety course before season begins
While boating season still is months away, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission suggests that now is the time to take a boater safety course.
A list of boating safety classes is available online. Options include an in-person classroom session, a self-taught home study course and an online course.
Persons born after Dec. 31, 1985, who operate a motorboat or personal watercraft in Nebraska, must have successfully completed the Nebraska boating safety course. They also must be in possession of a course certificate when operating the boat.
