To get your Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC), you need to write a test approved by Transport Canada. The Approved Boating Basics Handbook can help you prepare for the exam. All you need to know for your test is presented in an easy-to-read format. This study guide meets all the standards established by Transport Canada's Office of Boating Safety.

Written by the Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons (CPS), The Approved Boating Basics Handbook is an introduction to the legal, and safe, practices of boating. The manual is designed for both home-study use and in-class instruction.
