With the Evinrude outboards, students learn about current technology.

The ABYC Foundation and Evinrude donated 21 E-TEC G2 outboards to high schools and post-secondary schools that have marine technician training programs.

Fifty schools from the United States, Canada and the British Virgin Islands applied for the donation program, according to the American Boat and Yacht Council.

“The donation of engines gave our program a much needed facelift,” said Robert Berenwick, marine service technology instructor at Ocean County Vocational Technical School in New Jersey, in a statement.

“When people inquire or visit our shop they are impressed to see we have new engine technology and partnerships with industry leaders,” he said. “With access to ABYC standards and dealer-level training, students will be better prepared to enter the workforce.”
