California recently passed a boater education requirement. It will be phased in over a period of about 10 years, with younger persons being subject to the requirement earlier compared to older persons.

Good another state with the chance to get it right...are they blindly following the NASBLA format? If you don't know I hope I can find out the program guidelines on line.

Most states either limit the requirement basing it on the assumption of experience or they phase it in like NJ that gives the oldtimers a chance to study up...

The map shows South Carolina as requiring boater education. Here is the regulation from the DNR website:
Quote:
Who needs a Boater Education?

Boaters under 16 years of age are required by law to pass an approved boater education course before operating, without supervision, a personal watercraft (jet ski) or a boat powered by 15 hp motor or more.
This means a person sixteen years old or older does not need to pass an approved boater education course to operate a boat in SC.

So while the map is not incorrect, it implies that boaters in SC have passed an approved boating course when in fact, the vast majority of boat operators in SC are not covered by the requirement. It's an example of a way to use information in a misleading way.
