NEW Manual in 2012
In April 2011, Transport Canada introduced over 100 new required key learning points which were added to the original 149. Sail Canada now Canadian Yachting Association (our provider) has partnered with CPS (Canadian Sail and Power Squadron) to use their new and updated manual. This study guide has been revised to include all of the key learning points. The CPS manuals can be purchased at the locations noted for approximately $17.95 plus taxes.
There are other accredited course manuals available from other sources. Some are quite good, others are not. If you have a manual make sure it states somewhere that it is Canadian Coast Guard or Transport Canada accredited for the Pleasure Craft Operators Card and now make sure it is updated for the new course material (done in 2012).
NOTE: The free publication Safe Boating Guide produced by Fisheries and Oceans Canada Coast Guard does NOT cover all the course material that you will be tested on.
