Airmar Technology Corp. said it has launched its first certified installer program.

The company said the certification is designed to provide installers of marine electronics with best practices for transducer selection, installation and diagnostic testing.

Airmar said certified installers can provide customers with an additional third year of warranty coverage on qualifying transducers from the date of installation, compared with Airmar’s standard two-year warranty from the date of manufacture.

Certified installers also are eligible for onboard service reimbursement for any transducer that is within the warranty period, regardless of who installed it.

“Airmar is committed to educating marine installers on selecting the right transducer, based on their customers’ needs and boat type,” Jennifer Matsis, Airmar’s vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement.

“ACI training includes instruction on proper installation techniques for all mounting styles and valuable troubleshooting skills to solve complex onboard issues. In the end the consumer wins by getting the right transducer properly installed, superior sonar performance and a third year of warranty coverage,” she added.

Airmar said there are 10 course locations, and more will be added. The course will cover an in-depth education of transducer types, installation methods, troubleshooting and extensive hands-on training with the TDT1000 transducer diagnostic tester.
