Getting more people afloat is a key objective of the BIAA and one of the most important aspects of this is ensuring new boaters are properly trained and understand not only the rules and regulations, but also are educated about boating and how to boat safely.

A novel approach to this has been pioneered in the US by Kerry Moher’s Fresh Air Eductors’ programme, which has seen over one million boaters in North America undertake online education and training as part of their recreational boat licensing requirements.
Kerry will be explaining how this works and how it can be adopted in Australia at Marine13.
Co-founder of Fresh Air Educators, Kerry is responsible for government and agency relations, overseeing all course development, marketing and sales, strategic planning and implementation for Fresh Air Educators. He holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia, with over a decade of experience in e-learning and web marketing. Kerry has been a member of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) Education Committee since 2006.
This presentation is sure to attract the attention of boat dealers wanting to ensure their customers have ready access to safety education, as well as regulatory agencies looking to get boating safety messages out more effectively.
