Let your customers know they can enjoy boating activities all year, and go further and do more with their boats next season, by taking interesting and confidence-building boating courses.
Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP) offer a range of courses and seminars that cover everything from basic boat safety, handling and navigation up to advanced navigation, offshore cruising, understanding weather reports, using electronic navigation, boat maintenance, and much more. The Pleasure Craft Operator Card and VHF Radio Certificate (ROC-M) courses are also available.
Courses are usually offered during the winter and early spring months so boaters can enjoy year-long boating experiences, learn new skills, and make many new friends that have the same passion for boating. Courses are available online or in person and are hosted by volunteer instructors who are passionate boaters with a wealth of knowledge and stories that inspire.
It is said that knowledge is power and when it comes to boating, you can never have too much of it! That knowledge can provide your customers with the confidence to really enjoy boating, embark on new adventures next boating season and safely stick with boating for life.
