ABYC Electrical Certification Description:

Notes : The electrical course with Kevin Ritz is designed  to cover  the field of marine electrical design, service or installation.

The successful certification candidate should be familiar with all of the ABYC electrical standards, although the applicable standards will be reviewed as a part of the course. Course content is broken out into 14 topic areas that will be presented over a three and ½ day period. The three-hour certification exam will be administered during the fourth day of the program from late morning into early afternoon. The exact time for the exam will depend upon varying class sizes and review time needed. The 14 topic areas that the candidates should have some pre-requisite background in include:

· Electrical fundamentals                                     AC Shore Power Systems

· Cable Installation and Termination                   AC Generators

· Maintaining and Installing Battery Systems      AC Panel boards

· Battery Charging Systems                                DC Panel boards

· Inverters                                                           AC Components

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 at 3 hours and is comprised of approximately 200 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.
