Learn about Arkansas's safe boating laws and practices in this two-evening class. Anyone born on or after January 1, 1986, and of legal age to operate a motorboat, must have successfully completed an approved Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Boating Education Course and carry proof while operating a motorboat on Arkansas water. The law also affects operators of sailboats. Topics covered include types of boats and safety equipment, registration, rules of the road, trailering, and more. After passing the test, you will receive your boater education card. This is a free course, but you must pre-register by calling 479-967-5516.
