Boaters Can Take ABYC Courses Too; ABYC to Offer Standards-based 'Boater' Education Seminars in 2006

(PRWEB) December 1, 2005 -- In response to requests from boat owners who want to gain a working knowledge of American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) standards and how the standards affect them when it comes to simple repair and maintenance on their boats, ABYC will be offering three educational courses for boat owners in 2006. These courses will assist attendees in either completing do-it-yourself tasks in a compliant fashion, or enable them to ensure that others do the work according to the ABYC standards.

 “  The first two topics chosen – Basic Electricity for the Boater and Basic Diesel Engines for Boat Owners - were selected not only because they address the most relevant types of problems a boater may come across, but they are two areas where not com

 for the marine industry, we felt providing such educational offerings was a natural progression for ABYC. The first two topics chosen – Basic Electricity for the Boater and Basic Diesel Engines for Boat Owners - were selected not only because they address the most relevant types of problems a boater may come across, but they are two areas where not completing repairs in accordance with standards could create possible safety problems within those systems. By holding a two-day course that includes a hands-on component, attendees will receive a more complete program with practical applications to help keep their boats in top condition and provide a safer boating experience.”

Course information:

Basic Electricity for the Boater
This two-day program is designed to teach the boat owner the basic information they need to know to perform simple repair, troubleshooting and maintenance procedures on their boat’s electrical system. The course will begin with a look at electricity fundamentals and how some of the basic ABYC standards apply, and once the fundamentals are set in place, participants will learn

 how to take electrical measurements and what those measurements mean. Attendees will also review some common electrical system tests that can be performed to see if their boat’s electrical system is designed in accordance with ABYC standards. On the second day, the class will get an opportunity to apply their new found skills on a boat.
Dates: January 10 – 11, 2006
Location: Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT
Cost: $295.00

Dates: February 15 – 16, 2006
Location: Miami Convention Center, Miami,FL (during the Miami Boat Show)
Cost: Special Boat Show Price - $249.00

Basic Diesel Engines for Boat Owners
This two day course will provide the participant with the information they need to understand the needs of their engine and how to keep it running in tip-top form. The class will begin with a look at how a diesel engine works, and a comparison of it to a gasoline fueled engine. Students will explore each of the needs in detail, and all material discussed will be presented in a generic manner – so no matter what type of diesel engine they have, the information conveyed will apply. On day two, course participants will get an opportunity to apply their new skill sets on a real engine and all of it’s ancillary support systems.
Dates: March 1 - 2, 2006
Location: Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT
Cost: $295.00

Skip Burdon, ABYC President said, “By offering such courses to boating consumers, we want to show them the value of ABYC through education, and in turn – spread the word about ABYC. There are a lot of interested boat owners out there who are thirsty for knowledge on ABYC and our standards. We want to provide them with the information they are looking for and ultimately, by giving boaters a working knowledge of ABYC through topics of interest to them, we hope they will be confident enough to complete simple repairs in a compliant fashion, or know that when services are needed - whether buying a new boat, needing repairs/maintenance or a surveyor - they should seek out ABYC members.”

Registration information and detailed descriptions for any of the courses can be found at www.abycinc.org, or you can contact the ABYC Education department at (410) 956-1050.

ABYC has been developing, writing and updating the safety standards for boat building and repair in the United States for over 50 years. ABYC is actively involved with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as well as education and certification programs for marine technicians. These standards are available on CD-ROM, online (Web-STIR) and in printed form. Membership and general information can be requested by visiting the ABYC web site at www.abycinc.org.
