What are the requirements?

Since USPS is a volunteer organization, it is essential that our members be willing and able to contribute their time, energy, and skills to the objectives of the organization.

One of the core beliefs of USPS membership is that an educated boater is a safe boater. It should then come as no surprise that there is an educational requirement. Typically, this has been satisfied by completion of one of our public boating courses. However, recognizing that education can be obtained from various sources, a number of additional courses have been recognized as meeting this educational requirement. Most recently, the membership has elected to allow squadrons to waive the educational requirements for experienced boaters.

Finally, you must be at least 18 years of age.
