Normally, on this page, we post a schedule of upcoming courses and seminars taught at our Learning Center located in the Chamber-of-Commerce Plaza at 1114 N. Collier Blvd, Marco Island FL.  See Location for map.

 

In a normal year we offer 10-15 courses, each meeting for 5 to 10 sessions over a period of 2 to 8 weeks. We also typically offer 8-10 seminars each meeting for 1 or 2 sessions. These course and seminars teach boating skills, which leads to safety on the water. They will be rescheduled when conditions permit.
