ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) announced today that its Laminator Course and its accompanying study guide are now available in Spanish.
The ABYC is now offering the on-site course using a translator for the first time on-site in the Mexican Spanish dialect to all boat builders, composite manufacturers, government agencies and associations in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
Assisting in the translation and product integrity effort were staff from Brunswick Boat Group who provided time and expertise in editing and proofing the translation into Spanish.
“We are excited to have assisted ABYC make this important program become a reality in Spanish. This course will better educate and equip our Spanish-speaking production staff working in both Mexico and the United States with essential composite skill sets and competencies,” said Dave Marlow, Director of Product Integrity and Government Affairs, Brunswick Boat Group and Chair of ABYC’s Technical Board.
The ABYC Laminator Course is a two-day composites course designed to provide students with a basic foundation and understanding of the strict guidelines and techniques required of workers when building composite boats and marine structures.
The ABYC Spanish version of the Laminator Study Guide can be purchased independently for the introductory price of $60 through August 2011. After that date the study guide will be available for purchase at the regular price of $75. The ABYC Laminator course in Spanish is $375 for ABYC members, $450 for non-members.
