The Brunswick Boat Group hosted the American Boat and Yachting Council Standards Certification and Marine Systems Fast Trac, resulting in 36 new ABYC technician certifications.

The ABYC develops technical safety standards, education and professional certification for the marine industry. The Fast Trac program provides students with a faster, less expensive pathway to certification.

"There is a one-day class commitment, with a Q-and-A review of all the material, and then an exam," ABYC's vice president/education director Ed Sherman said in a statement. "Prior to the one-day session, the ABYC assigns the student an instructor who sends the student study guide material. The instructor remains ready to answer questions via phone or e-mail as the student works through the material."

"It was an honor to teach the ABYC Standards Certification and Marine Systems Fast Trac to Brunswick employees," ABYC instructor Denis Bonneau said. "It is through the efforts of companies like the Brunswick Boat Group, working with ABYC, which ensures boaters receive safe, high-quality products and services."

"We train our employees through ABYC's education programs in an effort to impart compliance of the standards to the workforce and further support our commitment to provide our customers a safe and reliable product," said Dave Marlow, director of product integrity and government affairs for the Brunswick Boat Group.

"In my humble opinion it helps set us apart and allows Brunswick to stay on top of a changing regulatory landscape."
