Tuesday, June 20, 2023 9:00am-
Wednesday, June 21, 2023 5:00pm


All newer boaters must pass an Ohio Boating Education Course (OBEC) before getting behind the wheel. Boat operators born on or after January 1, 1982, must complete a boating course or pass a proficiency exam. Classroom boating courses offer hands-on instruction with audio and visual materials and give boaters a chance to ask questions directly to an instructor. Topics include knowing your boat, operating safely, legal requirements, and boating emergencies. The Course will be team-taught by certified Instructors along with MWCD and ODNR officers, which include a minimum of eight hours of teaching and a written exam.
FREE OBEC for KIDS 2-Day Course is Jun 20-21, 2023
The two-day kid's course for ages 12-16 years is designed to have classroom time in the morning and then use the afternoon to reinforce the topics with hands-on experience with paddleboats (Kayaks) and power boats (Pontoons Boats) and review course objectives. The focus is to spread out the topics and allow more time for review with actual on-water experiences.
