Quick and easy online boat coursel. Once I passed the final exam, I was able to download my temp cert right away. Wish I would have known about this course a long time ago.
Information and tests were clear and concise. Cost was great and instructions were easy to follow. Would recommend.
Easy and clean platform to read and understand. Expectation was set on many levels. From courses to course length, to why the timer exists. Quick results are produced when you pass. Affordable class fee too! HIGHLY recommend.
Great Course. Self paced for a busy schedule. Does a great job of saving your progress and jumping back into it when you can. Passed the test at 98% first try after taking the course
As a retired State of California licensing program manager, I used to approve/deny course providers/instructors/courses to train our license applicants to pass our exams. Great job DBW for approving Safe2boat.
The website is very easy to use and the coursework was very easy to understand. This was a great experience...I'm really happy I chose your site to complete my education.
This site was easy to use. I enjoyed the content. It was concise and prepared you well for the quizzes and exam. It was very easy to get a passing score the first time without needing to review.
This service is awesome. Very informative and helpful. Passed my final test on the first try thanks to the information given in pre-testing. 5 stars for sure. Thank you!
Very easy to navigate, quick, great content and illustrations. Customer service will help you through the process if needed.
The pace of the instruction is great and the test at the conclusion of each section is a very useful feature. I purchased the course for my family and we all completed the course and passed the Boater Card exam on the first try.
