Ohio Boating Certification

Late last year I had some extra time so I decided to complete the Ohio boating course that is required for operating power boats greater than 10HP if you are born after January 1, 1982. Since I have plans to eventually own a boat with well over 10HP, I figured id get the course over with while I had time. I found that there are several options for taking the course online, one of which happens to be free at www.boatus.org. You can find other options for fulfilling the course here.

The BoatUS website was easy to navigate. The course is divided into 6 sections consisting of anywhere from 40 to 80 slides each. Each slide has a timer which must expire for you to move on to the next slide making the entire course take a minimum of 3-4 hours to complete. At the end of each section there is a 10 question quiz that you are required to get an 80% on to proceed, otherwise you must take the section over. After completing all 6 sections you must take a 75 question final exam and score an 80% or higher to get your certification. The best part is it's free and you get as many do-overs as you need. It took me approximately 8-10 hours to complete as I took my time and read the majority of the information.

A couple weeks ago I received my certification card in the mail from ODNR.

So to any would be boaters of the younger generation looking to be legal, it's pretty easy and free to get your certification online. Good luck and safe boating.

  3. The first occasion when I started up that 200 HP detachable, the thumping was uproarious to such an extent that you could nearly hear it clear across town. The detachable was shot and required a $5000 fix. boat garbage can
