PCOC - The Boating License

(Boating 1 - The Basics)


Boating Courses Online Training B2/B3 Combined

Thursday evening 7-9 for 12 weeks beginning January 26th

Beyond the Basics (Boating 2) In the second of our Boating Series, you are introduced to the art of navigation, anchoring, ropes, lines and knots – not to mention what to expect when the boat is moving under power. 

Introduction to Marine Navigation (Boating 3) This course continues the navigation theme set out in Beyond Boating Basics (B2) by focusing on navigation skills needed to measure, calculate and steer a course in open water without the benefit/assistance of aids to navigation (e.g., buoys or land-based light stations) and electronic navigation devices (e.g., Chartplotter).

How does your rescue happen?

RCAF Trenton Squadron, of Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons, would like to remind local boaters, as we approach the new boating season, to ensure that you have your ROC(M) radio operators’ card and know how your radio, either ship mounted or hand held, is used to correctly request assistance in the event that your boat requires a distress call. We are providing you with a great opportunity to hear how the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) works from the time you either dial *16 on your cell phone or use digital channel 70 on your DSC maritime VHF radio to make a distress call.
Since we do expect a large number of boaters wanting to attend and since the Yacht Club venue can hold about 60 folks there will be a registration list for this event. If we have more than 60, we will provide a second event at the Yacht Club. We are certainly hoping that the bar will be open, but have not yet received confirmation from the Yacht Club. Please RSVP to and we will take the first 60, with the others on a waiting list. For those further away this event will be livestreamed via ZOOM which is also limited to 60, so registration is also required. The registration will close at 1800 on Sunday, March 05, 2023 and names will be taken at the door. The price at the door will be a Twoney ($2.00)
