Previously, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation required boat operators to attend eight-hour sessions in a classroom.
“The video instruction and diagrams make boater education accessible and easy to understand. Hopefully, it’s a time-saver for people and a little more convenient too,” said Barclay.
