Boat Builders Course Set

THOMASTON — The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA), in partnership with the Marine Systems Training Center (MSTC), is offering the popular Marine Service Management (MSM) course in November.

The course is scheduled for Nov. 3 through 6, at the MSTC in Thomaston.


The class caters specifically toward professionals in boatyards and marine service and repair centers. Instructors present participants with pointers in such non-technical topics as human-resource development, financial controls, customer relations, codes and standards, marketing and sales, and more. The MSM is also a prerequisite to obtain ABBRA’s Certified Marine Service Manager designation, the only credential of its kind in the marine industry.

The ABBRA member rate of $1,749 for this course is being extended to members of the Maine Marine Trades Association as part of this partnership. The fee for non-members is $2,249. Course fee includes lunch daily, one group dinner, an opening reception, all course texts and handouts, and technical consultation with faculty.
