ABYC’S EDUCATOR TRAINING CONFERENCE JULY 23-25 – INAUGURAL “TRAIN-THE TRAINER” EVENT

ABYC

July 2, 2019

The American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) is hosting their first “Marine Service Technology: Educator Training Conference” to be held July 23-25, 2019 in Annapolis, Maryland. Within current registrants there are fifteen states and three countries represented.

“We are thrilled at the range of instructors signed up to be students that week. We have high school and post-secondary technical instructors who have been teaching marine tech for years, and some who are just starting to think about it. It’s a perfect place to successfully orient a whole new group of influencers for the future needs of the marine industry,” said John Adey, ABYC President.

Starting on Tuesday, July 23, the three-day conference will feature specific topics to enhance the knowledge, delivery and support of marine tech instructors and school administrators around the country. Topics include the evolution of tech ed and the modern student, shop stocking, layout and safety, creating and managing a curriculum advisory committee, the ABYC high school and tech school textbook and curriculum, the Evinrude outboard program, and hands-on training aids that bring complicated concepts to life. Woven around the classroom learning, a healthy dose of social time, including a customized tour on Annapolis waterways, will give participants time to network.

“This is the first of what we hope will become an annual event to support instructors from around the country, and beyond, who can make or break the future of boating.  In order to have great boating, you have to have great boats, well built and well repaired,” said Margaret Podlich of ABYC Foundation. “These are the people who are going to get the next generation focused, trained, and running into our industry.”

Several sponsors have jumped in to support the conference including Evinrude, PowerProducts, Imtra, NMEA, Safe Harbor Marinas and West Marine PRO. “This is the perfect place to introduce and showcase your brand,” added Podlich.
