In order to obtain this restricted endorsement, an applicant must:
(1) Have three-months service in the operation of the type of vessel for which the endorsement is requested;
(2) Satisfactorily complete a safe-boating course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, or those public education courses conducted by the U.S. Power Squadron or the American National Red Cross or a Coast Guard-approved course;
(3) Pass a limited examination appropriate for the activity to be conducted and the route authorized; and
(4) The first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course certificates required by § 11.205(e) of this part will only be required when, in the opinion of the OCMI, the geographic area over which service is authorized precludes obtaining medical services within a reasonable time.
