ABYC Electrical Certification Description:

This electrical certification course hosted by Blue Sea Systems, with instructor Kevin Ritz is designed and intended for those with a minimum of 3-5 years practical experience in the field of marine electrical design, service or installation. Students new to the marine electrical field should consider our basic electrical programming options.

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....DC Components Safety Equipment....Troubleshooting Tips and Hints

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.

All exams are proctored and any candidate caught texting or behaving unethically during the exam will be ejected by the test proctor. Candidates ejected due to unethical behavior will NOT be entitled to any refunds.
