ABYC REDUCES RE-CERTIFICATION COSTS FOR TECHNICIANS

 

The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) announced a new pricing structure that will create significant savings for technicians working towards multiple certifications in the same calendar year. Additionally, ABYC will no longer charge students for study guides for re-certifications.

 “After a routine survey asking our certified technicians what we could do to improve our services for them one thing was clear, our pricing was a bit too high and needed to change,” said Ed Sherman, vice president/education director of ABYC. “This new pricing structure is in direct response to our constituent base requests.

The new pricing structure, including the free study guides, has the following outcome for technicians:

  • One certification - $75 savings
  • Two certifications - $180 savings
  • Three certifications - $325 savings
  • The new cost for three or more re-certifications is $179 as compared to the traditional $249 price point

“The importance of keeping current and re-certification in today's changing world can't be understated,” Sherman said. “Our standards evolve and with that comes changes in the knowledge base for our eight certification areas, making re-certification every five years an important step in ensuring that repairs and new boats remain built and serviced using the most up to date standards in the industry."
