Once you have signed up for a course and submitted any required information, you will be paired up with one of our instructors. Your instructor will coordinate with you on a date and time to get on the water for your personal instruction time. Textbooks and course materials are provided to the student for self-study prior to scheduled classes and on-the-water practicals. Students are expected to have completed all assigned academic study, be prepared for instruction, and arrive on time for scheduled certifications. Certifications are conducted on Cave Run Lake, Kentucky Lake, in local classroom facilities, or on instructional cruises in other waters. On-the-water instruction is conducted aboard Instructors’ private vessels, CRSA club-owned vessels, or chartered vessels.
