A boating-safety course that leads to state certification will be offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary in Fairfield in April.

The course is scheduled Sunday, April 10, at the South Benson Marina. Registration takes place April 3.

The safe-boating certificate permits operation of power boats and personal water craft in Connecticut waters, the Coast Guard Auxiliary said. Fee for the course is $60, which includes materials and lunch.
