The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association is collaborating with the American Boat and Yacht Council to bring ABYC's new webinar training format to ABBRA members.

The first ABBRA/ABYC webinar, titled “Environmental, Health, and Safety Compliance, an Investment in your Company,” is scheduled for 1 p.m. (EST) on Dec. 7.

The initial live, interactive online ABBRA/ABYC session, presented by Kellie Crete, president and CEO of Ink Inc., will review new Occupational Safety and Health Administration fines and instruct participants about how to remain compliant at their facilities.

“The subject resonates specifically with professionals who own or manage boatyards, boatbuilding facilities and marinas,” ABBRA president Pam Lendzion said in a statement. “ABYC’s webinar series allows ABBRA members and their employees to take part in these trainings without leaving the job site.”

“Our new webinar program allows us to offer technical training to more professionals than ever before because there is no travel, no per diem. Simply log in to the site,” ABYC president Skip Burden said in a statement. “We’re reaching out to more industry members who will benefit from ABYC’s standards and electrical training and, because of this joint effort between associations, ABBRA’s technical training.”
