Radar for Boaters

Event Phone: (281) 451-1146

This class covers the Radar for Boaters course.

It will be taught every week on the listed schedule.  The first dates are instruction, followed by an overall review and the exam.  If you cannot make it to one or more of the instruction dates, you should be okay.  Please plan on attending the exam date, as the exam must be done in person.  The exam is graded and scored locally.

This course is required for BOC-Offshore Navigation certification, as of May 4, 2019, Radar for Boaters is a required course for its BOC-Advanced Coastal Navigation certification pre-requisite as well.

This is the first time this course is offered by the Houston Squadron – so patience and understanding will be needed!

Special Note:  The Squadron has great success with blended learning (in-person and teleconference).  This course will offer a teleconference option for those who cannot attend in person.  The Instructor and SEO will work with everyone, and if teleconference is preferred, then that will be the mechanism of delivery!
