The Missouri State Highway patrol will be offering a free boater safety certification course in April.

The class will begin at 9a.m. and will go until 4:30p.m. There is no fee for the course, but students are required to pre-register online as seating is limited. Missouri law requires anyone born after January 1st 1984 to carry a boater safety certification card along with a photo I.D. anytime they operate a vessel.
