HOWARD, OH - The Knox County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with the ODNR Watercraft, will be offering an Ohio Boating Education Course on Saturday, April 6th.

Held from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM on April 6th at the Apple Valley Administration Building in Howard, located at 113 Hasbrouck Circle, this course is free and open to the public. The course is approved by NASBLA and meets Ohio's boating education requirement, which became effective on the first of January in 2000. The law requires anyone born on or after January 1st, 1982, to successfully complete either a NASBLA-approved boating course or a proficiency examination before operating a boat greater than 10 horsepower. The course may also qualify boaters for a discount on boat owner's insurance.

The class covers the fundamentals of water safety, as well as the federal and state laws as they apply to boating and waterways. Those who pass the course will be provided with a wallet card as proof of course completion.

Those who wish to register for training may do so by contacting Captain Jay Sheffer with the Knox County Sheriff's Office at 740-399-3902.
