On Saturday, Feb. 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Black Diamond Police Department will be hosting a boating class where boaters can earn their Boaters Education Card.

Boaters 12 years and older who operate a 15 horsepower or greater boat are required to have their education card. Those born before Jan. 1, 1955 are exempt but can choose to get an education card if they plan to boat in Canada or Oregon, a media release stated.

This class is free. To register email the department at contactus@blackdiamondwa.gov or call the department at 253-631-1012 or contact Sgt. Mike Girias at mgirias@blackdiamondwa.gov.

However, once boaters have successfully completed the class they will need to send in their application along with the proper documents to Washington State Parks. The fee for getting an education is $10.
