The American Boat and Yacht Council added another course to its schedule.
Basic Marine Electrical will be held from Aug. 30-Sept. 1 at Sure Marine in Seattle.
This three-day course is designed for the marine professional who is an electrical novice with minimal or no electrical experience. Topics include basic theory, alternators, battery charger and bonding. AC and DC standards are covered in detail, as are troubleshooting practices.
The text for the course is “Powerboater's Guide to Electrical Systems,” second edition, written by ABYC curriculum director Ed Sherman. The book is included in the cost of the course and will be shipped to the meeting site.
