A new law that went into effect this month requires boaters born after May 1, 1996, to obtain an approved Boating Safety Certificate, the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation said.

Courses may be completed and certificates obtained through that office, the U.S. Power Squadron or the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. A list of approved courses is available on the State Parks website at http://wdt.me/Vsfavn.

Personal watercraft operators also need the certificate.
