WARREN, R.I. — The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA) will be offering its Marine Equipment Operator Training (MEOT) in two locations in March 2011. Registration is currently open for courses in Charleston, S.C., on March 1 and in Delran, N.J., on March 15. Both MEOT classes offer Marine Straddlelift training in the morning and Marine Forklift training in the afternoon.
“We feel all members of the marine industry benefit from having two choices for MEOT training in March,” Pam Lendzion, president of ABBRA, says. “Our Marine Equipment Operator Training has always been a great, low-cost ABBRA product and we are delighted to offer two sessions this winter.”
ABBRA’s MEOT training addresses such classroom topics as OSHA requirements, operator responsibilities, accident prevention, equipment inspection, boat-lifting and blocking standards, job-site safety, lift planning, supervisor awareness, and rigging considerations. Long-time ABBRA instructor Paul Doppke will present the Straddlelift and Forklift sessions.
The fee for the MEOT in Marine Straddlelift or Forklift is $150 per person. Registrants who opt to take both courses will pay a reduced fee of $275. All fees include course instruction, related course handouts, and a certificate of completion following successful completion of a written final exam.
