The American Boat and Yacht Council says that its inaugural “Marine Service Technology: Educator Training Conference” will be held July 23-25 in Annapolis, Md.

The three-day conference will feature specific topics to enhance the knowledge, delivery and support of marine instructors and school administrators around the country.

“Whether you have been teaching marine tech for years, or are thinking about starting a marine tech program, this is a must-attend event,” said ABYC vice president Ed Sherman in a statement. “Schools interested in a standards-based curriculum or trying to get more STEM into their shop class will learn how to do this painlessly, while networking and sharing ideas with other instructors.”

Conference topics include the state of the workforce, the evolution of “tech ed,” how to stretch instructor knowledge and resources, shop stocking and safety, and creating and managing a curriculum advisory committee.

It will also teach attendees how to use ABYC resources, provide hands-on work with training aids to complement textbook learning, how to present technical information effectively, and hands-on Evinrude outboard program training.
