For immediate release introduces new Louisiana online boating safety course and boating license test

New features enrich's boater education course. 

DALLAS — The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division made 10 arrests on the water Memorial Day weekend. With the Fourth of July holiday coming up, it's the perfect time to learn how to make Louisiana boating safer and more enjoyable. Become an educated, responsible boater by completing the Boat Louisiana safe boating course. (

At boaters learn the official boat education content developed for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. This safe boating course lets students earn their Louisiana boating license (or jet ski license) online to comply with Louisiana law. The new-and-improved Boat Louisiana course now offers the highest-quality online experience—less text, plenty of interactive reviews and practice, and on-the-water videos.

The course allows students to move quickly through short segments designed for bite-sized reading and quick comprehension. Learning is reinforced with interactive animations so students feel like they're on the water as they study casting off and docking, rescue techniques, the "Circle of Death," and other boating safety course topics.

Best of all, Boat Ed® has added more than an hour of streaming video with 45 exciting on-the-water action sequences. Produced during a 10-month period at a cost of $250,000, Boat Ed's video was shot with state-of-art equipment (jib arm cameras, specialized camera boats, gyro stabilizers) and professional talent (40 actors/extras, 10 camera crew members, and professional boat and personal watercraft operators). 

Getting a boating license online has never been so fun or convenient. Students study the fast-paced boating safety course online when it fits their schedule—setting up a free account and logging in or out as they wish. The online boating safety course fee includes the boat course, unit quizzes, unlimited practice exam attempts, and one final exam attempt at the online boating license test.

After passing the Louisiana boating exam, students immediately print out a temporary certificate, which is good for 60 days. They receive their permanent Louisiana boat education certificate by mail.
As an added bonus, students who send a copy of their boater safety course certificate (or boating license, as it's sometimes called) to their insurance agency might be eligible for a discount on boat or personal watercraft insurance.
