Yanmar and the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) are teaming up to conduct marine technician certification courses at Yanmar Academy located at the new Yanmar Evo Center in Georgia USA.

A Yanmar trainer will facilitate the course with ABYC’s guidance and certification materials, making ABYC Certification more accessible than ever for rising marine technicians.

“Having worked in the marine industry all my life, this collaboration between Yanmar Academy and ABYC is a natural fit,” said Eric Schaffer, Yanmar Academy High Speed Commercial Training Instructor.

“This partnership gives marine technicians the opportunity to receive industry standard training in a world-class, hands-on learning environment.”

Mr Schaffer said that the Yanmar Academy brings a systematic approach to training with a variety of course offerings for Yanmar product lines, including agriculture equipment, construction equipment, utility task vehicles, industrial diesel engines, energy systems and marine diesel engines.

All courses are led by staff experts and conducted in state-of -the -art, product -specific training labs designed with student computers, 60-inch computer displays, advanced audio systems for student convenience, master and student tool boxes as well as room exhaust systems.

Registration is now open for the first scheduled Diesel Engine Certification course will be held from 9 to 11 October 2018. Certification candidates with formal marine engine manufacturer training will learn additional information only addressed by the ABYC standards.
