ABYC offers certification-course discounts

Posted on

The American Boat and Yacht Council is offering yacht association/society members, owners, captains and crew of large yachts a $200 discount on all ABYC basic and advanced technical certification courses through June 30.

Also, ABYC is offering owners and captains of large yachts a special introductory annual membership in ABYC for $199.

“We are finding more and more interest by large yacht owners and captains desiring their general crew be proficient in conducting routine marine systems diagnostics, troubleshooting and minor maintenance and repairs while under way,” ABYC president Skip Burdon said in a statement

ABYC has developed several basic and eight standards-based technical certification courses to address the various systems found aboard modern boats and yachts.

These are the same courses boat- and yacht builders, as well as repair facilities and marine surveyors rely on to provide their technical work force with industry-endorsed non-proprietary technical training and certification.

“If these technical training and certification programs work well for land-based builders and repair facilities, they most certainly will enhance the value of crewmembers that may face having to respond to a marine systems challenge at sea,” said Ed Sherman, ABYC’s curriculum developer, leading instructor and industry-recognized technical author, in a statement.
