The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol Division will offer a free boating safety course on December 17 for those who want to complete the boating safety course before the summer heat arrives. Sgt. Jason Roberts will teach the one-day introductory course at the Canyon County Marine Office, located at 12996 Iowa Ave. in Nampa. Attendees will learn general information about boats and maintenance, information to make their boating experience safer, and tips on how to be a more courteous boat operator. Boaters will also learn about Idaho laws and regulations associated with owning and operating a boat.
The course is open to all boaters, regardless of experience, and attendees who complete either of the one-day courses will earn their boater education safety card. Those interested can register for the course by visiting the Idaho Parks & Recreation website or emailing Sgt. Jason Roberts at Jason.Roberts@canyoncounty.id.gov. For questions or additional information, please get in touch with Sgt. Jason Roberts at the email address above or via phone at (208) 453-2294.
