The lifetime certification is accepted in other states and provinces. To obtain your certification during the BOW workshop, you must register for the following courses:

Session 1 & 2 — Select only AL Boating Safety Certification course.  Participants must take and pass a required exam.  The pass rate among BOW participants is still 100%.  You can do it too!

Session 3 or 4 — Select any courses of interest, since no other courses are required for certification. However, participants will greatly benefit by also taking Motor Boat Handling.
