1. The Boat Operations and Training (BOAT) Program establishes a national standard for the training, qualification, credentialing and typing of marine law enforcement and emergency first responders. Adoption and implementation of the program provides a true national standard for maritime interoperability at all government levels. Standardization ensures maritime agencies can interact together and will bolster their ability to act as force multipliers nationwide.

    Adapted from the U.S. Coast Guard’s boat forces training framework, the BOAT Program is comprised of vital maritime training and management components, including:

    • System Policy
    • The Training and Qualification Process
    • Boat Crew Qualification Tasks
    • Program Manager Roles and Responsibilities
    • Boat Crew Currency Maintenance
    • Documentation Requirements

  2. The Airboat Operators Course gives maritime law enforcement and emergency responders, with proficient boating skills, a comprehensive framework to be more effective with specialized skills necessary to operate AIRBOATS in the maritime environment. A key element of this course is the preparation of participants to become qualified in the tasks necessary for response to maritime safety and security operations, and Coast Guard/FEMA recognition in the national qualification database maintained by and through NASBLA.

  5. With grant assistance from the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) has been offering boating accident investigation courses for more than two decades. Chock-full of information, these courses give law enforcement officers the opportunity to advance their skills in accident investigation. The courses also provide critical data to help shape boating safety regulations across the country.
