Boating classes are held twice a year for 15 weeks starting in September and January. The Boat1: Boating Basics class is 4 weeks and will result in the issuance of a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC).  The Boat2: Beyond the PCOC class carries on where the Basics left off -- this class runs for an additional 6 weeks.   The third in our introductory series, is Boat3: Introduction to Navigation.  Students signing up for the combined classes (Boat2: Beyond the PCOC and Boat3: Introduction to Navigation) will receive a $20 discount.  Classes are held at the St. Matthias Church Hall, 600 Richmond Ave and Camosun Coastal Centre (marine training facility), 100 Maplebank Road.

In addition, Victoria Power and Sail Squadron offers several advanced courses (requiring pre-requisites) and several elective courses each year. Check the following table for detailed information.
