ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) has released a new self-study DVD-based Electrical Certification program for the marine industry’s workforce.
The program is made in partnership with Ken Cook Co., an ISO-certified provider of technical publications.
The course is intended to lower the overall cost for marine technicians to become ABYC certified.
Ken Cook, President and owner of Ken Cook Co., said, “We are proud to have partnered with ABYC to make this product a reality. This DVD based distance learning program offers complete flexibility in scheduling and, I believe will allow users to review and retain material that can be immediately applied in the workplace as they continue their course of study.”
According to ABYC, the course was designed for the marine employee with at least three years experience working with marine electricity. Students will receive the DVD, instructions and a comprehensive graphics-rich and easy-to-understand study guide. It is recommended that a student dedicate approximately 60 hours to the course in order to successfully meet certification-testing requirements. Proctored certification will be made available on a worldwide basis through the coordination with assigned ABYC members.
ABYC is offering a three-month introductory purchase fee of $400 for the CD Electrical Certification Course. An additional $225 testing fee will be assessed at the final testing site.
