Beginning in January, the Marine Industry Dealership Certification program is implementing a series of online Launch Workshops designed to reduce costs to program participants.

Attendance at a Launch Workshop is the first step for all dealerships that want to get started on the certification process. During the workshop, program requirements are explained in detail and dealerships are provided with tools necessary to complete the dealership certification program.

“The new web-based workshops provide exactly what the dealers themselves told us they wanted: A quality program with an eye toward keeping the dealers’ program costs as low as possible,” said Phil Keeter, president of the Marine Retailers Association of America and vice president of Marine Certification Inc.

Upcoming web-based Launch Workshops dates include:

  • Jan. 20-21
  • Feb. 24-25
  • March 17-18
  • April 7-8
  • April 21-22
  • May 12-13

To register for any of the Launch Workshops listed above, visit DealerCertification.org or call (800) 975-7894.

To date, a total of 425 dealerships have earned the official “Marine Industry Certified” designation.
