The American Boat & Yacht Council will provide no-cost access to its April webinar series on a global basis.

This offer is extended to the first 1,000 registrants for each webinar.

"This is our way of encouraging all levels of our industry to participate and learn firsthand of the quality of our webinar series, as well as to thank industry members for their efforts in manufacturing, maintaining and repairing boats and marine products to ABYC standards," ABYC president Skip Burdon said in a statement.

As part of its new global education outreach program, ABYC will be offering two technical webinars per month throughout the remainder of 2011.

The regular rate for an ABYC technical webinar is $49 per site, with unlimited live access to that site for ABYC members; the rate is $69 for non-members, which includes an opportunity to view the recorded webinar for an additional 30 days at no extra cost. ABYC also offers access to previously recorded webinars for $69 for 30 days.
