MADISON, Ala. -- After high demand for enrollment, CDI Electronics Ignition School may add a third 40-hour training session for technicians in March, CDI Electronics reported in a statement yesterday.
The first successful CDI Electronics Ignition School was held at the company’s Madison, Ala., manufacturing facility in late October. The second session is scheduled for December 3-6 and classes are already filled, according to the company.
Marine technicians from 11 states and Australia completed the first hands-on courses and obtained both Certificates for Technical Achievement and shirt patches verifying their outboard electronic ignition training. The training included: Basic Electrical; Boat-tronics 101; Optical Ignition Systems; Outboard EFI Systems; and Direct Fuel Injection Technology, the company reported.

CDI Electronics found a need for specialized training in today’s state-of-the-art ignition products and in keeping with its commitment to continuing education for technicians decided to develop this school, according to Anders.
