The shortage of technicians may be the biggest challenge facing the marine industry. Without trained technicians, dealerships, manufacturers, and the consumer suffer, which is why the ABYC Foundation is committed to making training programs more accessible and to ensure current and aspiring technicians receive the education they need to excel in the workforce. 


Our Purpose

The ABYC Foundation is focused on workforce development and providing the resources that create educational and lifelong career opportunities to both current and aspiring marine service technicians.

Is your organization looking to get involved in supporting the education of the next generation of marine technicians? 

Tax-deductible donations to the ABYC Foundation help ensure that our work continues. 

The ABYC  Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  Email or call to work together and boost the marine workforce in your area!
