ABYC Standards Certification provides the student with a comprehensive and focused look at the key ABYC standards. Class discussion will address specific compliance issues relevant to engineers, installers, compliance inspectors and marine surveyors. Common non-compliance areas will be discussed and how to address these issues in both the factory and field environments. Where it is relevant, US code of Federal Regulation (CFR) will be reviewed as they relate to ABYC standards.
Candidates may reference all study materials including the supplied study guide (which contains all pertinent ABYC standards integrated into the text), class notes and additional ABYC standards in either printed or computer-based form during the certification exam. The exam is timed and is comprised of approximately 100 multiple-choice questions.
Students with special needs must inform the ABYC in writing of said needs at the time of class registration to ensure that any special accommodations can be made for exam taking. Students must supply their own #2 pencil if they are going to be taking the written version of the certification exam. Students may use a calculator during the exam.
All exams are proctored and any candidate caught texting or behaving unethically during the exam will be ejected by the test proctor. Candidates ejected due to unethical behavior will NOT be entitled to any refunds.
The ABYC reserves the right to cancel any and all classes due to lack of enrollment up to two weeks prior to the scheduled class start date. Candidates need to take this into consideration when making travel and lodging reservations. The ABYC cannot be held responsible for non-refundable airfare or hotel fees.
