A series of Coast Guard boating courses will start Monday at Kalaheo High School.
Classes, which will be Mondays and Thursdays through March 22, will cover federal equipment requirements, boat handling, navigation aids, federal navigation rules, coastal navigation, radio communications, engines, knots and lines, weather and more.
The course is certified and meets United States Coast Guard, state and national boating law requirements.
Classes are free but registration is limited to 25 students. The manuals and workbook required for certification cost $30 for those who register early and $35 at the door.
Upon certification, students will be eligible for boat insurance discounts, one year free membership in Boat/US, and a discount on marine safety products.
