American’s Boating Club offers a series of 2 to 4 hour seminars on different aspects of boating.

One of the main goals of the United States Power Squadrons is “providing quality boating education” — we believe that an educated boater is a safer boater. USPS provides many skill-building opportunities to the general public through a variety of courses, seminars, and marine-related guides. Our instructors are certified regarding their ability to teach and to use modern instructional techniques. All classes are fun and informative, and bring you into contact with other boaters.
