The Blue Goose

USFWS National Wildlife Refuge System
9 hrs
The Blue Goose is the symbol of the National Wildlife Refuge System.
Rachel Carson, author of the seminal book “Silent Spring,” said: “Wherever you meet this sign, respect it. It means that the land behind the sign has been dedicated by the American people to preserving, for themselves and their children, as much of our native wildlife as can be retained along with our modern civilization.”

Boating Education In Tennessee


Any Tennessee resident born after January 1, 1989 must show the TWRA-issued wallet Boating Safety Education Certificate as proof of successful completion of the TWRA Boating Safety exam.  
No other certificate will be accepted as meeting the requirements of the law.  The Tennessee mandatory boating education law is similar to the driver’s license law.  You acquire the study materials, study, and then take an approved boating safety exam administered by an approved representative of the TWRA
If there is an adult on board (at least 18 years old, or if born after 1/1/89, or possesses the certification) that can take immediate control of the vessel this certificate is not required.
Out of State Boaters
If you were born after January 1, 1989, TWRA will accept any NASBLA approved boating safety certificate.

FAQ


How do I replace my lost or stolen boating safety card?

If your boating safety card is lost or stolen, you may purchase a Type 605 license from a license agent for $5.00. The duplicate card will be mailed approximately 2 weeks from purchase date.

How do I take the exam?

First, you must be at least 12 years old to take the exam. After studying the boating safety material, you must first purchase, for $10.00, a Type 600 boating safety exam permit from any business (license agent) that sells hunting and fishing licenses (WalMart sporting goods, bait stores, marinas, etc.).  If your parents or someone else purchases the permit for you to take the exam, they must give your information to the sales agent. Otherwise the proper information will not match and you will not receive the boating safety certificate.
The receipt from this transaction is your "ticket" to take the exam. Try not to lose this receipt, it will admit you into an exam location and will also serve as a temporary certificate if you pass the exam.
If you do not pass the exam, this receipt/"ticket" can continue to be used to take the exam as many times as it takes to pass. Try not to lose it!

How do I study?

There are many avenues to study:
  • You may call (615) 781-6682, e-mail, or write to Boating Division, TWRA, PO Box 40747, Nashville, TN 37204 and have study materials sent to you (free) and self study.
  • You may log onto www.boat-ed.com/tennessee and study online by clicking  “Study Guide” at the top of the page.
  • Boating Safety Class. There are many classroom classes offered throughout the state. See the map below for classes available in your area.

How long does it take to complete the exam?

Allow approximately one hour to take the exam.

How long will it take to receive my wallet card?

When you pass the exam, you will receive your wallet card in the mail within a few weeks.

Renters of Watercraft

People who rent any type of watercraft are exempt from having the certification.  The renter is determined by the name that appears on the rental agreement.
