The BoatUS Foundation's Online Course is NOT approved by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to satisfy the mandatory education requirements for boaters and PWC operators born on or after 1/1/1986.
Anyone may take the BoatU.S. Foundation's Free Online Boating Safety course as practice or to receive a discount on boat/PWC marine insurance. But Arkansas boaters who were born on or after 1/1/1986 must complete a course approved by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commision in order to operate on the waters of the state of Arkansas.
