This course will provide 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.  

The new class format now includes an online learning component designed to provide preliminary coursework prior to the class.  The online component for the ABYC Standards Certification class covers the first two chapters of the course book.  It also provides an overview of ABYC along with certification requirements and helpful hints to manage your certification.
