This course consists of instructor guided self-study. During this time period there will be in-class evenings spent reviewing the course content with the instructor. Upon successful completion of the Transport Canada examination at the end of this course you will receive your temporary certificate for the operation of a powered vessel in Canadian and USA waters.  Your permanent Boaters Card will be mailed to you.

We also sell the Boating Basics manual for self-study and can provide the PCOC Transport Canada exam on request.
