NASBLA awards first Certified Recreational Boating Professional (CRBP) certification
The Certified Recreational Boating Professional (CRBP) certification is a voluntary credential for recreational boating professionals developed by NASBLA. The credential is broad-based and addresses boating professionals’ knowledge, performance and career achievements in the identified program domains.
On August 18, 2020, David Windsor, National Coordinator of the Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow Program (CLfT), passed the exam and was awarded his CRBP certification. The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) is pleased to recognize David Windsor as the first person to complete the exam for the CRBP credential.
Windsor currently serves with the Mason County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol in Michigan. He spent 27 and a half years with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Law Enforcement Division where he served as a conservation officer in various positions including field officer, Environmental Investigator, Training Officer, and during his last six years with the department, as a Captain and the Commander over the Education and Training Section. In that capacity, Windsor often attended the International Boating and Water Safety Summit (IBWSS) and other NASBLA functions.
Windsor served as President of the Association of Natural Resource Enforcement Trainers (ANRET) for three terms and also served one term as Secretary of the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA). He has attended several boating-related training programs including: the NASBLA Level 1 Boat Accident Investigation (BAI) course, the GPS Forensics course, the Seaport Security for Law Enforcement course, and the NASBLA/National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) Boat Safety Instructor Train-the-Trainer course. Windsor is a certified Boater Education Instructor in Indiana and Michigan and is a lifetime member of IHEA-USA, and the Boone and Crockett Club, an organization that promotes the conservation and management of wildlife and its habitat.
Please join NASBLA staff in congratulating David Windsor for being the first to achieve the title of Certified Recreational Boating Professional!
