Blue Sea Systems, a Washington state-based manufacturer of marine electrical systems, hosted the American Boat and Yacht Council’s Marine Electrical Certification course in late December.

Nine Blue Sea Systems employees attended the course and passed the rigorous electrical certification exam.

“Having nine newly certified employees is a testament of our commitment to the ABYC and the electrical standards,” Blue Sea Systems senior vice president David Johnson said in a statement. "This further supports our commitment to providing product and customer service which exceeds expectations."

Blue Sea Systems now has 11 ABYC-certified employees, including regional sales managers, engineers, production staff, sales engineers and technical support.

"We appreciate the training and insight our personnel get from the ABYC and how it enhances our ability to better support our customers on technical questions," Blue Sea Systems chief technology officer Wayne Kelsoe said.

"It was an honor to teach an ABYC Electrical Certification class to nine employees and 11 local technicians at the Blue Sea Systems facility," ABYC instructor Kevin Ritz said. "It is through the efforts of companies like Blue Sea Systems, working with ABYC, which ensures boaters receive safe, high-quality products for their electrical projects."

The ABYC offers courses throughout the year in several U.S. cities.
