Instead of $59.95, for a limited time you pay only $29.95 for everything (the official online boater course, the official boater exam, and the official boater license – legally called the Pleasure Craft Operator Card). Plus: You pay only AFTER you pass the official boater test. Welcome aboard!

As both a competitive and recreational boater, I know that boating safety is very important. The freecourse.ca online study guide and downloadable course manual will give you the knowledge that you need to obtain your Pleasure Craft Operator Card. Here's to safe boating!

We liked your web site a lot and we printed your free course manual to loan out to boaters. Your help and your web site are much appreciated.

We thoroughly enjoyed your free online course. We studied it as a family and wrote our exams yesterday. The folks at Tri-City Dive in Kitchener were most helpful and friendly. Thanks for making your online course available. We'll no doubt have a safer boating season this summer because of it. Thanks again.

My family is using your web site and I must compliment you! Your site is comprehensive, straightforward to navigate, and provides an excellent presentation of the information we need. You have provided an excellent tool to learn a great deal about safe boating in a convenient, at-home environment. We are so confident in your program that we now have our daughter using your web site. It is our intention to pass on your web site's co-ordinates to as many boating friends as we can. Congratulations on a well thought out endeavour. We know success will be experienced by all who use your service.

On behalf of myself and my neighbours, thank you for bringing your program to our lake. Your on-site course is superb and we will be inviting you back again soon.

Recently I finished your course online and wrote my exam. I would just like to say that this was one of the best learning experiences that I have had in a long time. The course material was well put together and presented, second to none as far as I am concerned. Thanks for this course and your efforts to make the water ways a safer place for my family and myself.

I would like to say that I am really impressed with your program. Your free online training course is excellent and just about as perfect as I can imagine! The review questions after each chapter helped me a lot in confirming I had understood everything. Thanks!

I operated a boat as a child 50 years ago and had no idea how much I did not know. I was nervous about studying and taking the test and therefore greatly appreciated your method of studying for free. The amount of boating information you provide is amazing and will not only help me to be a better boater but will help my grandchildren to learn safe boating practices. Although nervous about the test I found it to be easy after thoroughly studying your materials. Thank you.

- David Letts

I congratulate you! Your online course was well put together, easy to navigate, at no cost, and offered me the knowledge I need to feel confident on the water. I will highly recommend your course to my family and friends. Great job!

Thank you for the awesome study material. I completed the study material and early this evening I passed the Transport Canada exam at your site. So happy that I can now go out boating with my new license. Thank you again and I will be sending my friends to your website for their boating license.

Just finished taking the Transport Canada PCOC test and it was easy thanks to the great freecourse.ca course materials. I'm planning on taking sailing lessons next and getting my PCOC was a great way to start.

Wear It!

Failure to wear a flotation device is the leading contributing factor in boating fatalities. When on the water, the single-most important thing that you can do to prevent drowning is to always wear a properly adjusted PFD or lifejacket of appropriate type, size, and fit.
