NMEA releases education and training lineup for 2017 conference

The National Marine Electronics Association has released the full education and training schedule for the 2017 NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo.

The events will be held Sept. 26-28 at the Hilton Bellevue Hotel in Bellevue, Wash.

The NMEA said that each day the education and training sessions will end before the exposition hall opens, allowing all registrants, including exhibitors, to attend the classroom sessions and marine electronics expo.

The education classes are offered on separate technical and business tracks, each repeated twice during the three-day event. Preregistration is not required for these sessions.

Full-day training courses will be available at the event for marine electronics installers, including NMEA basic/advanced Marine Electronics Installer and basic/advanced NMEA 2000 Network Installer.

Product training provided by manufacturers is also on the agenda at the conference.

Once again this year, the NMEA and the American Boat & Yacht Council will offer a four-day NMEA/ABYC combined electrical and electronics training course.

Additional fees apply for these sessions.
