Where in “the current mandatory boating certificate law” does it say “the child’s parent can not operate that same boat without a certificate”?

The current law states: “A vessel powered by 25 horsepower or less does not require the operator to have a Safe Boater Education Certificate.”

Therefore that allows everyone regardless of age (that means parents of a two year old) to operate “A vessel powered by 25 horsepower or less” without a safe boating certificate.

What am I missing here???
