Port Supply is sponsoring a four-day American Boat and Yacht Council marine systems certification course this summer to provide more regional training opportunities to customers in the mid-Atlantic.

The training will be held Aug. 25-28 at two marinas (The Sailing Emporium and Haven Harbor Marina) in Rock Hall, Md. Lunch will be provided each day at no cost to the students by The Sailing Emporium, Haven Harbor Marina and the town of Rock Hall. Upon completion of the course, there will be a social networking event Aug. 28 hosted by The Sailing Emporium.

"As part of Port Supply's ProBusiness program, we want to support the training needs of our customers and provide educational opportunities that are close to home," said Bob Cox, mid-Atlantic market team manager for Port Supply, in a statement. "By partnering with ABYC, local marine facilities can receive useful and pertinent safety-based technical training that raises the bar when it comes to boatbuilding and repair work in this area."

The cost is $745 per person for one to two people, $720 per person for three to four people and $695 per person for six or more.
