ABYC Offers New Electrical Course


The American Boat and Yacht Council is offering an online course for its newest professional certification, Advanced Marine Electrical.

The course covers such topics as alternative charging sources, AC power-conversion equipment, galvanic isolation, three-phase power distribution and electric propulsion, ABYC said in an announcement.

“As electric and electronics systems on recreational vessels become more complex, technicians need to expand their knowledge to provide the service their customers require,” said education director David Broadbent. “Continuing education is more important than ever, but we know finding time is challenging. We designed this on-demand course to be done at your own pace, outside of a scheduled class, so you don’t miss valuable time working in the field.”
