Re: ABYC Electrical certification
If you don't have the real world practical experience in marine systems then the test could be hard. There is lots on electrical theory, some questions purposely try to trick you (be very careful in how you read a question) and the test is timed so you really need to know the information to move through it.
IIRC it was about 4 hours. I took my test at one of the better boat building schools in the country, where this was the students final exam. A fair number paid 40 grand for the school and did not pass on the first round.
The study guide helps but I would urge you to take the course with Ed Sherman if you don't have the hands on practical experience in marine systems.
I didn't think it was very hard but they did throw a few zingers in there.
