Boat Operator Proficiency Exam
As of September 15, 2009, all boat operators are required by law to have a Canadian Coast Guard Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC)!
Obtaining your PCOC is quite simple and affordable. Here is what you need to do:
- Study the course materials found on www.freecourse.ca.
- When studying the course materials, please make note that you must also become familiar with the rules and guidelines for ocean sailing vessels.
- When you are comfortable with the course materials, contact the campus nearest you to book an appointment to write the exam. The exam fee is $40, you have 45 minutes to complete 36 questions, and must obtain 75% to successfully pass.
- PLEASE NOTE: the exam is only available at the Creston and Golden campuses.
This is a one-time process and once you successfully obtain your PCOC, it is good for life. It is that simple!
