Sgt. Aaron Frenzel recently helped teach a section of Alaska Water Wise which was held on Saturday, August 22nd. Alaska Water Wise is a free boating course for Alaskans offered through the Alaska Boating Safety Program. The course has been approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and is recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard. It may even qualify boaters for boat insurance discounts.
Segments include pre-departure preparation, boat operation, boating emergencies, cold-water survival, the navigation rules, and legal requirements. Students who attend all sessions and pass the written exam and skills will be issued a course completion certificate.
This course has also been approved for eight hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) training by the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services.
Sgt. Frenzel works out of the Juneau Post, Southern Detachment. Included in the student evaluations were positive comments of appreciation for Sgt. Frenzel's discussion of Alaska state laws and boating carriage requirements.
