The course is United States Power Squadron (U.S.P.S.) certified and is taught by boating safety expert Dr. Wil Hugli the U.S.P.S. Educational Director for the region. The registration fee is $35 per participant and $20 for any other additional female family members.

Half of the instruction is in a classroom setting and the latter half is on the water in a vessel supplied by MarineMax Panama City. Course materials and other surprise items from MarineMax Panama City are included.
“Being United States Power Squadron certified makes this WOW course unique to MarineMax Panama City,” expressed Bob Fowler, sales consultant and broker. “The United States Power Squadron is the only agency which is certified to conduct on-water instructions by the United States Coast Guard and women who complete the course can receive up to 30% discounts on their boat insurance. Saving substantially more than the cost of the course.”
