Training and qualifications are established to ensure the readiness of multiple agency boat crews to complete assigned missions or carry out responsibilities safely and effectively. NASBLA BOAT Program staff can assist your agency in coordinating your BOAT Program training needs through resident courses or with exportable instructors.
What is being said about the BOAT Program?
“While I did not have the opportunity to take the class myself, I spoke with many of the officers that did for their evaluation of the program. I wanted to make sure the investment I made financially and in personnel was worth it. To an officer, the feedback on the course was exceptional.” Colonel Kyle Overturf, Connecticut Environmental Conservation Police
“I want to thank you (John Fetterman) and NASBLA for moving forward with the concept of providing the states with greater services, especially in the training field as it relates to boating. This was something we had talked about while I was the BLA and the President of NASBLA, as we needed to adjust to changing times and make NASBLA a key player into the future in the Boating world. This is a good step in that direction. The partnerships that this is creating and the increased skill levels of our boating enforcement officers is a clear benefit of this training. We look forward to additional training in the other programs that you are offering in the near future.” Bill Engfer, Homeland Security Coordinator, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
