One of the main goals of the United States Power Squadrons® is "boating safety through education!"  We believe that an educated boater is a safe boater.


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

We have both classroom and On-The-Water (OTW) training for our basic boating course, ABC (America's Boating Course), as well as our advanced courses like Seamanship, Piloting, Advanced Piloting, Navigation, or Sail.
