PA Fish & Boat Commission Announces Basic Boating Course
April 8, 2010
Bellefonte, PA – Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Mt. Jewett Sportsmans Club will be hosting a Basic Boating Course instructed by Fish and Boat Commission staff on May 4 and 6, 2010. The course will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. each night at the Mt. Jewett Sportsmans Club in Mt. Jewett. There is no charge for the course. All participants must pre-register and must attend both sessions. Please call Amidea Daniel at 814-359-5127 by April 26, 2010 to register.

The Basic Boating Course is designed to supply boaters with practical information so they can make better informed decisions on the water. Instructors will provide students with information via a classroom setting to help them reduce the risk of injury and conflict on the water. Students who successfully complete the course may apply for a Boating Safety Education Certificate for a $10 fee. The certificate is required of all operators of personal watercraft (PWCs) or anyone born on or after January 1, 1982 who operate a motorboat of more than 25 horsepower. More information about this course or boating safety can be found by visiting the Commission's website at

The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit our website at
