Pleasure Craft Operator Lessons in Edmonton, Alberta

There’s nothing better than a day spent on the water! But before you climb aboard your boat, make sure you have the proper credentials. If you’ll be operating a motorboat or a pleasure craft for recreational purposes, you must possess a Pleasure Craft Operator Card. A PCOC, which can be obtained by pleasure craft operator lessons, proves your competency in operating this type of vessel and is required for boat operators of all ages. You’ll need to have this card on board at all times, as enforcement officers can ask to see it for any reason and can issue citations if it can’t be located.

Please keep in mind that this card is not a licence to operate a boat; its sole purpose is to prove that the operator has knowledge of standard boating safety and understands the basic rules of the water.

Once you receive your operator card, it’s good for life. However, if you lose the card or it’s significantly damaged, you must order a replacement.

How to Get a Pleasure Craft Operator Card

Ready to get your own PCOC? Trophy Book Archery Ltd. can help! As accredited boat safety course providers, we can adequately prepare you for the written test you must pass before a card can be received. Our course will cover the basics of boating, including:

  • Minimum safety equipment requirements
  • The Canadian buoy system
  • Standard boating regulations
  • Proper boating etiquette
  • How to handle emergency situation

This course will stress the importance of boating safety and your responsibilities as an operator. The test can only be taken once in a 24-hour period, so if you’re unsuccessful in your first try, you’ll need to continue to take the exam until it’s passed.
