The course covers operating a boat safely, getting under way, state legal requirements, water sports, and  what to do in case of an emergency.  It will be taught by certified members of the United States Power Squadron, and it’s required if you are a Tennessee resident born after January 1st 1989.  Also this class is a certified pre-requisite for all of the NSBC on the water courses, including the close quarters boating course. Those who would like to take the associated test (NOTE: this is required if you were born after January 1st 1989) must purchase a $10.00 Type 600 boating safety exam pass from any TWRA certified hunting/fishing license vendor and bring it with you to the class.  It lasts from 5:30PM to 8:00PM in Northeast State’s library building room L-106 on the following dates:
