Payment Policy

Our online boater training system and online boater testing system are free services; Candidates only pay a fee when they wish to order their freecourse.ca PCOC (Pleasure Craft Operator Card).

To order a PCOC from freecourse.ca, one must first pass our seven-part online study guide at our web site followed by a Transport Canada Boating Safety Test.

When you pass the online test, our system will allow you to order one or more copies of your Pleasure Craft Operator Card. The first card is $19.95 (+ tax) and additional cards if ordered at the same time cost $14.95 (+ tax). Taxes are assigned based on the address to which your PCOC(s) will be forwarded.

When completing the online form to order a PCOC, it is important that clients carefully review their personal information (name, mailing address, and date of birth) before submitting an order to buy one or more PCOCs.

When you pass your test, you can go to Step 3 to pay for your PCOC(s). Payment can be made in either of two ways:

  • By credit card – Through PayPal you can pay for your boater card(s) by Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. This is a 100% safe process with a high level of security and encryption.
  • By cheque or money order – Once you have passed the test, you can send us a cheque or money order made out to freecourse.ca. The first card in your order will cost $19.95 + GST and HST as applicable in your province. Additional cards ordered at the same time are $14.95 + tax.
