All major certifications will be offered at least once in each region of the country, Mike New, the American Boat & Yacht Council's education director, said in a statement. Courses begin in early January and run through next December.
"We are holding more classes than ever before in 2007," he added. "We will be testing out a number of new locations in response to the ever-increasing demand for ABYC certifications by the marine technical workforce."
