    OCEAN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY -The Ocean County Vocational Technical School’s Marine Service Technology Program recently hosted a regional training seminar for members of the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC). The ABYC, established in the 1950’s, is a non-profit organization committed to providing technical education, training, certification and professional development throughout the boating industry.

    The training seminar, held at the OCVTS Toms River Center, attracted over 45 participants from as far away as Staten Island, New York, and Annapolis Maryland. Attendees included marine service technicians, surveyors and investigators, retailers and dealers, marina owners and other marine-related professionals. The objective of the ABYC training seminar series is to keep its membership informed of current state and national legislation, safety developments as it pertains to the marine industry, as well as continuing technical training. The topic of this seminar was corrosion theory, prevention, new products and application of new practices.

    OCVTS Marine Service Technology Instructor Rob Berenwick provided a tour of the Marine Service Technology workshop as well as an overview of the program’s curriculum. Current statistics show that there over 154,000 recreational boats in New Jersey; each one at some point, requiring maintenance and repair. The marine trades industry offers a multitude of year-round career opportunities. The OCVTS Marine Services Technology program established in 1979 offers skills in theory, maintenance and troubleshooting of outboard and inboard marine engines. Students develop a working knowledge of marine systems such as electrical, mechanical, cooling, fuel, boat design and construction. The program has access to waterfront facilities where students learn boating safety, seamanship and basic navigation while operating and maintaining vessels. Students completing this program are prepared for employment in the marine trade industry or to continue on to technical institutes to further their training.
