Given full options I’d never recommend this route. I learned far more from the captain while taking the test, than I did from online. It was extremely long and time consuming. Not being able to advance at my own pace was extreme unacceptable and frustrating.

I found the structure of the course was great going from a initial starting point to more advanced information and knowledge requirements. I'VE watched some segments over again a few times to reinforce my understanding of the subject matter.
This is a great thing to help people get into boating safely.

The test I took in the end used some different terminology and had some discrepancies from what I'd learned in the Boat Ed course. This could be a Canada-US thing but it wouldn't hurt for Boat Ed staff to take a look at the final test again to reconcile the slight but measurable differences.
I enjoyed the course. It was structured well with a good balance of interactive diagrams, videos, text and mini quizzes. I learned a lot for sure.

Awesome experience and great customer service. The check in process was easy and fast. Staff explained in detail all parts, functions, and the different compartments where we could put our personal belongings and drinks. Overall, I felt pretty confident about all the explanations and made my first time riding a jet-ski be a pleasant one.

It was very educational for me. I learned some tips that I didn't think about before. Convenient for me to complete the course online at my own pace.

Even after owning a boat for over 40 years I learned some things that I wasn't aware of. I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to even the most seasoned boater. The content and timeline were just right in my opinion.

While I did like the course, I did not complete it within 3 months, and customer service refused to reopen the course to me. So much for "complete at your own pace", this false advertising wasted my time and money. I paid for 2 courses, one for me, and one for my friend, and we both did not complete the course in time. Even with my receipt and invoice number provided to them, they still declined to let me take the course and acquire my license unless I paid again.
EDIT: After writing this review, the manager called me and made it right. I now have access to the course!

I wasn't expecting much from this course at the beginning. It was just a requirement that I needed to complete to be able to operate my new boat. I expected it to be a time-waster. It turned out to be a good, solid course that covered boating fundamentals in a thorough, easy-to-understand manner. The quizzes and practice exam helped identify gaps in my knowledge. It was actually an enjoyable experience!

Process is easy and straight forward. Only complaint is the timing on each of the review parts where you have to stay on that particular page/section. I'm not a quick reader by any means and most of the time i was done reading with tons of tine still to go, the waiting wpas a bit aggravating. I liked thpat i could stop and save where i was and start again when i had time to start agsin.

Corse was a bit long but it taught everything that it needed to
Shipping speeds were also reasonable

This was a very well put together instructional video. It was fun to watch and very informative. The marina where I rented my boat from agreed. Stating that even some seasoned boaters taking it as a refresher learned something new from its content. Don’t change a thing!

Boat-ed made it so easy to learn. The website is user friendly and easy to navigate. The material is thorough, well explained and the videos are very well done. I would recommend their course to everyone trying to get their certification.

I’m a first time boater, with a new Robalo 180 center console, and no experience boating GA lakes or soon Florida’s Intracoastal
The boaters course work, videos, quizzes and DNR interviews were really helpful
By the time I first launched independently I felt confident in knowing what not to do, being alert for other boaters mistakes, and careful for my passengers
The course formed a real base for being on the water, trailering, refueling and conserving our natural resource
I recommend it for anyone planning to boat anywhere

Great easy to learn course. I had my temporary boating license in 24 hours. And then got my actual license in the mail within 2 weeks. I highly recommend this course. Now i know what to do in the waters when the situation arises. Thank you very much boat ed.
