Certification Exam Testing:

At the end of the live webinar sessions you can take the ABYC Gasoline Engines Certification exam online; you can take a proctored test one of two ways…

  1. Testing online through an online proctoring service, ProctorU (computer/laptop with a webcam is required)
  2. Testing online at your local library


Upon signing up for this Interactive Online Gasoline Engines Certification course, let Casey Bates (cbates@abycinc.org) know which proctored testing option you prefer and I will provide more information.


Course Topics:

The Gasoline Engines Certification takes a generic look at gasoline engine theory and troubleshooting and marine specific installation requirements not only as based on ABYC Standards, but in the case of gasoline USCG requirements as dictated by the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations). Due to the larger presence of carbon monoxide and fuel volatility with gasoline engines more standards as well as Federal laws apply to gasoline engine installations.

The course is designed for the marine professional with at least 3 - 5 years’ experience working in the industry.

The successful certification candidate should have some familiarity with ABYC Standards and topics covered listed below.
