Program Visitor Information: 

The Recreational Boating Safety Program Visitation Program (RBSVP) continues to play an ever increasing role and is an integral component of the USCG’s Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) program. Program Visitors (PV’s) serve as “community ambassadors”, and promote safe boating through the aid of Program Partners who are businesses or organizations where the boating public might frequent. This community outreach program not only provides Program Partners with safety/boating related literature, but serves as a resource link (point of contact) for Program Partners who may need more information including, but not limited to, answers to questions such as: documentation, recall status, or technical questions. The RBSVP interfaces with other RBS programs and provides additional information to Program Partners such as schedules and details for vessel examinations (VE), boating safety classes (PE), and special events (PA). Under all circumstances, PV’s must maintain the best of personal appearance and CORRECTLY worn uniform along with a solid knowledge base of safe boating practices.
