Get safe and get certified with Oregon's online boating safety course and boat license exam promotes its convenient, online Oregon boater education course.

DALLAS — It's the perfect time of year for those enjoying Oregon waters to do their part to
make boating safer and more enjoyable. It's easy to become an educated, responsible boater by completing the Boat Oregon safe boating course. (

At, boaters learn the official boat education content developed for the Oregon State Marine Board. The online boating course lets students earn their Oregon Boater Education Card and comply with Oregon law. All boaters must successfully complete a boating education course to legally operate a powerboat in Oregon.  Although it's often called a boating license (or jet ski license), the certification card isn't like a driver's license—it's good for life and never has to be renewed.

The Boat Oregon course 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® includes more than an hour of streaming video with 45 exciting on-the-water action sequences. 

One student wrote: "The videos drove the point home or provided a review. This was way better than sitting in a classroom, and I liked the fact that you could do it in your own time!" 

Getting an online boating license 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 test fee includes the boat course, unit quizzes, and two attempts at the online boating license test. No payment is required until students pass the final boating exam.

After passing the Oregon boating exam, students may order the state-required permanent card online and immediately print out a certificate of completion, which serves as a temporary operating permit (or boating license, as it's sometimes called).

The recognized leader in boating safety, Boat Ed is the official and exclusive provider of print and Internet boating safety courses for 49 states, plus the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. For more information about boater's license or safety certification requirements, visit
