Boaters safety is something that we all need to understand as well as teach our children. Most people, unless they have done some research, don't know what the Michigan marine laws are and quite frankly if someone gets hurt while they are enjoying the lake it can be tragic and can be life altering.
Here is a link to an online course that you and/or your children can take. It is $29.50 to take the course. Upon completion the student will receive a certificate card. As a reminder, "any motorized boat operator born after June 30, 1996, is required by law to pass a boater safety course and to carry a boater education card. In addition, boater education is also required for all PWC (Personal Water Craft) operators born after December 31, 1978." The web address for this class is www.boat-ed.com/michigan/
