Your local US Coast Guard Auxiliary 10-10 has the USCG approved boating courses that will fulfill much more than your obligation under the new Georgia law and/or give you confidence as a safe boater for you and your family!
Our courses are full of local knowledge,
we explain federal & state do’s & dont’s that we make easy & fun to understand. Online courses simply can’t supply the hands on, local knowledge that the experienced instructors of the USCGAux provide. Sometimes rules & regulations can be both boring and overreaching...boating law, however, is just good common sense!!

wants you to have fun and stay safe at the same time
