(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana Conservation Officers are again partnering with the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) to encourage boaters to “Spring Aboard” and enroll in a boater education course. 

Working in partnership with states, online providers Boat-ed.com and Boaterexam.com are offering course discounts for students who enroll in or complete a course during the Spring Aboard campaign from March 17-23.

“An informed and knowledgeable boat operator is much more likely to recognize hazardous conditions on the water and avoid a boating mishap”, said Indiana Boating Law Administrator Lt. Kenton Turner. 

Online classes are available 24/7 and provide state-specific information needed for your boating location.  Indiana Conservation Officers also offer classroom courses.  Hoosiers can visit www.boat-ed.com/indiana for online courses.  For classroom course options, visit www.register-ed.com/programs/Indiana for classes offered in your area.  Online users should use VIP Code: SpringAboard19 for discounts.
