CANTON, Ga, — The Association of Marine Technicians (AMTECH) launched a new technician competency program at the organization’s annual service training convention.
The program is designed to recognize AMTECH members who have successfully completed training programs that are conducted by AMTECH’s education division, the Marine Career Institute of North America (MCTINA).
All AMTECH/MCTINA courses will earn credit toward the following specialist categories: Outboard Specialist, Inboard I/O Specialist, Fiberglass Specialist and Advanced Systems Specialist. The Advanced Systems Specialist category will include principles of both outboard and inboard, plus specific elective courses. All technicians will be required to take three prerequisite courses: Principles of Troubleshooting, Electrical Troubleshooting and CanBus Technology.
“The goal of the new AMTECH Specialist program is to actively promote the technicians who have met the grade and proven their competencies,” says Joe De Marco, AMTECH president.
