What is the Educational Program of the United States Power Squadrons? The USPS Educational Program is diverse and challenging. It offers to the member the promise of greater enjoyment and safety in their own boating activities. In addition, the Educational Program offers the satisfaction of personal accomplishment, and the opportunity to share with others the knowledge and skills the individual member has acquired. There are currently four major divisions in the USPS Educational Program:
The courses available to the public and a place to start.
A sequential group of five courses in seamanship and navigation.
Six non-sequential courses in diverse marine-oriented topics.
A collection of short home-study guides on special subjects.
