Sold-Out ABYC/NMEA Class Attracts Students from Around the World

Annapolis, MD – The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) and the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) hosted a sold-out joint training event last week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Attendees came to the four-day class in pursuit of marine electrical training and certification from across the United States, New Zealand, Sweden, Mexico, the Caribbean and South America.

 “It was great to have such a diverse group in attendance,” said Ed Sherman, vice president and education director of ABYC. “Students had the opportunity exchange information with people from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels from center consoles yacht tenders to those with a focus on super yachts.”

Mike Spyros, NMEA instructor, also commented on the success of the class. “With the challenging course material presented, this group was particularly eager to learn with excellent participation.”

The class included two of the days on ABYC marine electrical standards and training, and two days on NMEA marine electronics standards and training. The classes are designed as a one-stop shop for boat builders, installers, technicians, marine mechanics and surveyors.

"This new program will go a long way toward ensuring that the technicians working on your boat will have proven expertise with both the electrical power side and electronic side of these complex systems," Sherman said.

Additional training ABYC/NMEA education events will take place in 2016 across the U.S.:
