WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) -

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 81, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Lake, will conduct a personal watercraft and boating safety course.

The course will take place at the West Point Project Management Office on August 20 and 22 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.

This course will provide information on legal requirements, navigation rules, preventing personal watercraft and boating accidents, and new boating laws.

Participants will receive a certificate from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources upon completion of this course. For Alabama residents, this certificate will exempt them from taking the written exam when obtaining an Alabama boating license.

This course also meets Georgia's law that requires completion of a safe boating course for individuals born after January 1, 1998 who wish to operate a motorized vessel on Georgia waters.

There is a $15 fee to attend this class which will be collected during the first night. A maximum of 40 participants can be accommodated for the course on a first come, first served basis.

Pre-registration is necessary and can be done by calling the West Point Project Management Office at 706-645-2937.
