Governor Lamont issued Executive Order #7JJ on May 6, 2020 which suspends certain legal restraints enabling DEEP and our partners to provide on-line safe boating courses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioner Dykes also issued an Order with details for this effort. Specifically, the on-line classes will be held on an interactive videoconferencing platform which provide the opportunity for dialog between the instructors and students. DEEP will now also allow the boating safety course students or those wishing to take an equivalency examination to take an on-line examination.
