Troop H Offers Boating Safety Course


Troop H of the Missouri State Highway Patrol is offering area citizens a boating safety course to inform and motivate boaters to prepare for the upcoming boating season.

The free course will be offered from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. Saturday, June 4, at the Troop H Headquarters located at 3525 North Belt Highway, in St. Joseph. There will be a break for lunch, but it will not be provided. While the class is free, pre-registration is required.

For more information, to register for the course, or to obtain a complete listing of where other courses are being offered, you may visit the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s website.

Missouri law requires everyone born after January 1, 1984, who operates a vessel on Missouri lakes to possess a certified boating safety education card. This includes personal watercraft operators.

This approved course meets the national boating educational standard. Those who successfully pass the course can order a boater safety certification card for $15. The boater safety certification card does not expire and does not need to be renewed.
