TWRA Boating Safety Education course
Any person operating a vessel who was born after Jan. 1, 1989, must have successfully completed the TWRA Boating Safety Education course and have the TWRA-issued wallet certificate with them at all times as they operate the boat.
Someone may operate the boat without the training, but there MUST be a trained boat operator who can immediate take control who is over 18 years old and who, if born after Jan. 1, 1989, has the operators safety training and required wallet license with them.
