The American Boat and Yacht Council said it will host marine training seminars this month and in April at four locations in three states.

Seminars will be held on March 23 in Toms River, N.J., and on April 4 in Chesapeake, Va.; April 5 in Wilmington, N.C.; and April 6 in Morehead City, N.C.

The ABYC said the seminars are open to all levels of experience. Those who attend will receive industry training from ABYC technical staff, network with other local professionals and earn four continuing education units.

“We started these regional seminars last year, and due to the excellent reviews we have now included it as part of our long-term education strategy,” ABYC membership director Kevin Scullen said in a statement.

“Members and non-members are getting an opportunity to learn about ABYC standards in real-world scenarios while interacting with other professionals who have similar project and business challenges.”

Agenda topics include circuit protection and battery management; new products/applications by Blue Sea Systems and Mastervolt; “Standards Gone Wild” marine electrical training; and marketing a marine business.

Registration is $59 for ABYC members and $79 for nonmembers; dinner is included.

The ABYC also said it will host a Boat Builders Symposium in Morehead City, N.C., on April 4 from 7 a.m. to noon.

ABYC vice president Craig Scholten will lead attendees through discussions about building and exporting boats, quality assurance, Coast Guard regulations and standardized warning labels. Registration is $79 for ABYC members and $99 for nonmembers; breakfast is included.

Additional training seminars are being planned for the summer. The ABYC said sponsorship opportunities are available for following dates: June 28, Fort Lauderdale; June 29, Fort Myers, Fla.; and June 30, Clearwater, Fla.

Registration is not yet open for the summer events.
