The 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 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
instructor / proctor. Candidates ejected due to unethical behavior will NOT be
entitled to any refunds.
