US Powerboating Certifications are typically taught in 2 consecutive Saturdays. Basic Powerboat Cruising is comprised of two, 8-hour sessions and must be taken in order. This class includes the vessel, instructor, texts, materials, testing, and US POWERBOATING certification. This schedule works well for our students who live in the Greater Seattle Area and Western Washington. Live-aboard accommodations can be made for those traveling to Windworks from outlying areas to better accommodate weekend classes or charters.
