Testing and training platform provider Yardstick is thrilled to announce the launch of BoatExams.com, operated by the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons and powered by Yardstick’s Learning Management Platform. The website is well on its way to becoming the number one choice for boating enthusiasts to obtain a Transport Canada approved Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC – Boater License).
For $49.95, anyone over the age of 16 can purchase the three hour Boating Basics Online Course which includes one-year complimentary associate membership with the CPS, five professionally designed interactive course modules and upon successful completion of the course, immediate access to a downloadable PDF wallet certificate and bonus lessons on trailering, docking, and locking. Transport Canada issues the official PCO card four to six weeks after the exam.
“This project has been two years in the making and the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons is delighted to have worked with Yardstick. Yardstick played a pivotal role in getting our online boater training program to market, and going forward we are extremely confident that Yardstick has the technology and infrastructure to support the thousands of Canadians who will take this course in the years to come,” said Alain Briere, Executive Director.
“We are grateful to have been selected by the CPS-ECP as the online training and testing technology partner for the PCOC training course,” said Greg Kureluk, VP Sales & Marketing at Yardstick Software. “In the high-stakes world of certification and licensure, reputation and experience means everything and I believe that our partnership with the CPS-ECP will solidify our position as a Canadian leader in the online training and certification industry.”
The comprehensive CPS Boating Safety online study guide, offered by CPS-ECP, is approved by Transport Canada for candidates to the online version of the Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) Boating Safety exam.
