At the request of the Taiwan Yacht Industry Association and the United Ship Design & Development Center, the American Boat & Yacht Council will be holding two ABYC certification courses in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

ABYC will conduct the four-day electrical certification course May 12-15 and the four-day marine systems certification course May 18-21 as part of the ABYC on-site training program.

Both courses will be taught by ABYC instructor Mickey Smith and will be held at the USDDC office in Kaohsiung.

"ABYC was honored to be contacted about our on-site training program by the TYIS and USDDC," said Mike New, ABYC education director, in a statement. "ABYC has taught our certification courses all around the world to include Australia, England, South Africa and Canada, and we are thrilled to be moving into this geographic region of the world.

"Taiwan has been producing recreational craft for over 30 years now, and we feel that by hosting two ABYC certification courses, the Taiwan boatbuilding community is recognizing the importance of building safe, better-quality boats using ABYC standards," he added.
