You MUST schedule a proctored exam at your local Sheriff's Office to obtain you Michigan Boaters Safety Certificate.

Please visit our Boater Safety Course information on the Sheriff's Office homepage.

The Eaton County Marine Division operates on a grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and funding from the County. The purpose of the Marine Division is to educate boat operators and promote safe boating practices in Eaton County and on all Michigan, and International Waters.


This reporting period found the Marine Divisions focus predominantly on safety education. Many attendees were between 12 and 16 years old. They benefited by obtaining their Boating Safety Certificates which allows them to operate a boat or a personal watercraft without direct adult supervision. We had, and encouraged boaters know the rules of navigation and there have been many changes in state and federal boating laws.
