Whether you are a Jet-Ski jockey, plan to pilot a 65-ft. yacht, or want to operate any other recreational motorized vessel (or a sailboat over 19.5 ft. powered by sail alone) in our state waters, you need a Connecticut Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation.

At NVCC, we offer two convenient ways for you to get your certificate.

​Choose from:

  • a one-day Saturday course instructed by Professional Marine Services 
  • 4-session weeknight option instructed by Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) volunteers.
