If you pass the NJ boating safety course online do you still have to take the test in person? Some people tell me I do others say the online certificate is accepted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
In the first paragraph you will see that the course is valad for "In Person testing, through a approved instructor". How that translates into a online course is beyond me.... I just don't see it, and wouldn't mind it being investigated further by the NJSP.
What is to keep somone from cheating on the test? Not that it's that hard anyway.
Your online course certificate will serve as your admission ticket to the state-required In-Person Exam. You will be able to register online after passing. There is a $30.00 fee for the In-Person Exam, payable online when registering. After passing the In-Person Exam, you will be issued a New Jersey Boat Safety Certificate by the New Jersey State Police.
Seems like some smoke and mirrors and misleading advertising.
Thanks to everyone who responded. I took the test on Saturday, it was a long day but well worth it. The best part was the people I met that were in the class. Most were long time fisherman yet they never heard of the Bass Barn. Hopefully I turned them into future Barners.
On that NJ course site, there is a link to "register on-line for your in-person exam"
NJ has steadfastly held the line the you can pretty much take your course anywhere, but your exam must be proctored live.
$39.95 to read the free NJ State Police booklet. I hope there is more to it!
