Re: Looking for marine systems training school

[QUOTE=eherlihy;956759]Uh... I am not discounting the value of attending an ABYC certified course, but I don't put all my faith behind the ABYC designation.

I had also enrolled in, and attended, a two-day ABYC seminar in Marine Electronics. Come to think of it, I got a certificate too! QUOTE]

Big difference between a Certification Course and a certificate of attendance at a seminar. The nice thing about the ABYC courses is that you don't have to commit to a long semester or a year. You can take the courses individually. I've been taking them for years and found them all very worthwhile.
