Boating

Connecticut Basic Boating

This the required course for obtaining the Connecticut Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation (CPWO), which covers the operation of both boats and personal watercraft. The instruction also includes the newest requirement for towing skiers and tubes, and operating recreational vessels up to 65 feet in length, including jet skis. Students age 12 and up are welcome. The DEEP license fee is $50. The certificate is a one-time, lifetime certification.  Please note: Students must attend all sessions to qualify for the CPWO. Students should obtain a State Conservation ID number online before the start of class. This process is free, and if you have a hunting or fishing license, then you already have a number. The website for obtaining a number is www.ct.wildlifelicense.com/internetsales.
