Refresher training is offered to currently-certified motorboat operators. It provides updated information related to watercraft operation and helps ensure proficiency. The refresher training includes two modules:
- Classroom instruction that assesses the operator's knowledge of safe boating, and
- Proficiency module that assesses the operator's practical skills and abilities to operate a motorboat.
The refresher training provides motorboat operators with updated information on new equipment, trends, and techniques in watercraft operation. It also provides a check of the operator's skills to ensure that individuals are able to safely operate motorboats in their expected work environment.
The student must complete an educational (classroom or equivalent) examination module, and a practical proficiency module:
A. Education (Classroom or equivalent):
B. Practical Proficiency:
Supervisor documentation of motorboat proficiency must be sent to Gary Schetrompf, 304-876-7255, FAX 304-876-7262 or email@example.com Please follow link to download supervisor verification form.
- Significant proven and safe operation of motorboats since completing the MOCC. This may be selected if the individual operates boats regularly as a normal part of their job.

- Retaking the Motorboat Operator Certification Course (MOCC). This should be selected if the individual has not operated boats on a regular or occasional basis as a normal part of their job and needs to remain certified.
