2009 Operator Safety Courses


Pleasure Craft Operator Card

The MLA reminds all members that the Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) will be required for ALL boat operators by September 15, 2009. If you do not yet have yours, we will have information on local and online testers available in the MLA office. We are planning to co-ordinate several testing dates at convenient sites around Muskoka. It is anticipated that there will be a rush to get PCOC testing this summer. Don’t wait until it is too late.

Junior Boating Courses

The MLA is planning to have several junior boater knowledge training sessions throughout the summer. Several options have been put forward. One is to repeat the one-week afternoon courses with the PCOC examination on the Friday. Another is to have a more compact two-day course, perhaps all day on a Friday and Saturday, including the PCOC examination. Courses are to be held at various sites around the 3 main lakes. If you are interested in having your children attend a course, please contact the MLA Office (705-765-5723) and give us an indication of your interest in the style of course you are interested in and your preferred lake location.

Adult Boating Skills Courses

A new Hands-on Driver Training boating course designed to benefit everyone is being offered this coming season. This popular on water course improves boat handling and docking skills for old pros and beginners alike. Have fun while learning how to get the most out of your boat.
