ABYC offers Basic Marine Electrical Course at new venue

EDGEWATER, Md. – The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) will conduct its Basic Marine Electrical seminar on February 25-27, 2004 at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Conn., which was recently added to ABYC’s 2004 Education Programs schedule, the group reported in a recent statement.

The three-day seminar is designed for the marine technician, marine surveyor, and boat builder with minimal or no electrical experience, according to ABYC. Taught by ABYC’s instructor, Ed Sherman, this course will begin with basic theory and walk through the ABYC electrical standards. Other topics to be covered will include: AC & DC standards, trouble-shooting practices, alternators, battery chargers, and bonding.

“This three-day seminar marks the first time ABYC has offered an educational program at Mystic Seaport,” said Bonnie Barsa, education director for ABYC. “ABYC receives many requests from industry representatives to provide training and education on a regional basis, and we felt that offering this course at a venue such as Mystic would be a convenient locale for the regional marine industry.”

The education fee for this seminar is $429 for ABYC members, $589 for non-members, and includes the textbook, “Boating Magazine’s Powerboater’s Guide to Electrical Systems.” To register for this program, call the ABYC office at (410) 956-1050.
