Yamaha Marine Group adds new training course

Yamaha Marine Group announced the addition of a course called “Endless Propeller Solutions” to its training curriculum.

The instructor-led training, offered through Yamaha Marine University, will be available to Yamaha Marine dealer principals and service professionals to meet growing demand.

Participants will receive a combination of lecture and hands-on instruction.

“The relationship between the boat, outboard, and propeller is vital to proper performance,” propeller product manager David Meeler said in a statement. “Keeping abreast of propeller technology and applications will help Yamaha dealer technicians make better decisions about their customers’propeller needs, which, in turn, improves customer satisfaction with our products and their dealership.”

Yamaha will conduct Endless Propeller Solutions in September, 2014, and January, February and March 2015.

The course joins Inline Engine Systems, V-Engine Systems, Electrical Systems, Drive Train Systems, and Helm Master Fully Integrated Boat Control System, among other technical training offerings.
