Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons
Brockville Squadron is currently co-hosting Combined Boating 2 & 3 – Online with the Kingston and Ottawa Squadrons. Registration is now closed. The course will run through until 7 February 2022.
Most courses offered by CPS-ECP Squadrons across the country are now being delivered either entirely online or in a blended format that combines online self-study, weekly webinars and individual tutoring (in-person or virtually). This means you are not restricted to taking only courses that are offered by your local Squadron. Please see the broad selection of boating courses available at boatingcourses.ca. If a course offered by another Squadron requires a local tutor, a Brockville Squadron member would be glad to volunteer. Please contact David Allester.
Check out the Boating Courses information from the Power Squadron HQ.
Brockville Squadron plans to continue to provide both introductory and advanced boating courses in the future. We often co-host courses with Kingston and Ottawa Squadrons. Please check back here in Summer 2022 when we will post our Fall 2022 course selection. Or contact David Allester for an update.
We may offer a classroom Marine VHF Radio-Operator’s Course - ROC(M) – in Spring 2022 if COVID-19 protocols allow and there is sufficient local interest. Please contact David Allester if you are interested or would like more information. See below for ROC(M) online options.

Learn how to operate a marine VHF radio by registering for the Maritime Radio Course (← click it) . Choose a location with an online course that matches your schedule. The course prepares you for the Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) exam, which is part of the package. You need the certificate to operate a maritime radio – it’s the law!
