ABYC Launches Online Learning Platform
Annapolis, Md. – The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) has launched a new online marine training platform which hosts multi-module courses, interactive learning tools and on-demand webinars. Students will have the opportunity to learn at their own pace and save in travel expenses to attend on-site courses.
“ABYC is strengthening its position as the marine industry’s leader in technical training with the introduction of the online learning platform,” said Matt Wienold, ABYC education development manager. “Our members and technicians need more flexibility and this new opportunity will be an excellent supplement to ABYC’s educational offerings.”
According to a study from the Brandon-Hall Group, online learning requires 40 percent to 60 percent less employee time than learning the same material in a traditional classroom setting.
“ABYC’s online courses will let employers and students say when, where and how new skills are learned,” said Wienold.
Current live courses include basic marine electrical and corrosion mitigation, marine accident investigation and ABYC supplement 56 webinar. Additional courses are under development, many of which are free and will earn students continuing education credits.
The online courses feature audio, visual and video content. With interactive quizzing throughout each course, students receive immediate feedback on their progress and direction for further exploration on areas that require more attention.
