ABYC/NMEA combined marine electrical training
Date(s) - May 23, 2016 - May 26, 2016
ABYC is pleased to announce a joint training venture with The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). This four-day training event will focus two of the days on ABYC marine electrical standards and training, and two days on NMEA marine electronics standards and training. This will be the marine industry’s premier training event specifically designed as a one-stop shop for boat builders, installers, technicians, marine mechanics and surveyors to get trained on ABYC and NMEA standards.
“For the past year, both associations have met to strategically discuss the best way to work together,” said Mark Reedenauer, NMEA’s President and Executive Director. “It was unanimously agreed that a 4-day training event is the best offering that can be provided to both marine electricians and marine electronics installers. Never before could a marine professional attend four days of training and potentially walk away with three certifications,”
Regarding this new collaboration, Ed Sherman, ABYC Vice President and Education Director said “I’m thrilled that ABYC and NMEA have been able to create this opportunity for marine industry electrical and electronic technicians. As the convergence of onboard electrical and electronic systems continues to become more prevalent on new boats or as part of major retrofits, the need for highly qualified installation specialists is more important than ever. This new program will go a long way toward ensuring that the technicians working on your boat will have proven expertise with both the electrical power side and electronic side of these complex systems.”
