At GetMyBoat, safety is our top priority. It's crucial for both renters and boat captains to have the appropriate training and licensing to safely operate their watercraft of choice in the locations they choose to boat in. Even for experienced boaters, taking time to earn new safety certifications and complete additional training will help to hone your skills on the water and could prevent an accident in the future.

Through our partnerships with Mariners Learning System and Georgian College, you will have the opportunity to earn your captain's license and improve upon your skillset as a boater. Upon completion of these courses/certifications, you will be able to enjoy the water responsibly and feel more confident and comfortable in your boating abilities.

Whether you are new to boating or a seasoned mariner, you can find accredited courses that will be beneficial to you and your maritime career.
