One of the main goals of the United States Power Squadrons(R) is "boating safety through education!"


We believe that an educated boater is a safe boater.


In addition to Americas Boating Class, USPS teaches a series of outstanding courses and seminars that cover advanced seamanship, navigational techniques, boat handling and maintenance along with enhanced topics.

  • Americas Boating course - 3rd Edition (ABC3) This introductory course teaches the fundamentals of safe boat handling and operation in a one day class. It also includes State of Ohio boat operators certification.

  • Advanced Courses are designed to be taken in sequence as each builds on the skill and knowledge taught in the previous course.

  • Elective Courses cover separate and independent topics and may be taken in any order.

  • Seminars are short one day or evening classes that cover various topics ranging from Trailering, VHF Radio, Radar and more. Seminars are scheduled periodically bases on interest and availability.
