Boating Safety on the Rio Grande
Spring is coming and the weather is perfect for getting out and enjoying your raft, canoe, kayak, stand up paddlecraft (SUP), or other paddle craft on the Rio Grande in the Albuquerque area.
The New Mexico State Parks Division’s Boating Safety office, has supported the work of the National Association of State Boating Administrators (NASBLA) and is proud to have one of the leading online boating safety educators bring you a free Paddlesports on-line safety course.
Kerry Moher, Vice President of BOATERexam.com and member of the NASBLA Education Standards Panel said that “Many of us are also avid paddlers. So we put two and two together and decided to create a free course that would help new enthusiasts enjoy the sport safely.”
"By making the course free of charge, we hope that many new paddlers will spend a few minutes to learn some basics before heading out on the water.” Anytime is a good time to take the course,” concludes Moher. To take the paddlesport course visit www.boaterexam.com/paddling.
